The Man In A Business Suit

I saw a man in a business suit
Feeding ducks at the park
I paused in my walk
To watch him silently

And I felt a sort of sadness
Start to envelope me
I couldn't help but wonder
What must have happened
To bring him there

Standing alone in an empty park
Pulling bread from a brown paper bag
And throwing it absentmindedly to the ground

Feeling intrusive I turned to leave
The falling rain followed my footsteps
Offering a muffled beat


  1. I can feel the mellow sound of this. Great!

  2. I'm glad you caught this moment in poetry. Very intriguing.

  3. Love your poetic tales. I hope you write more. Hope your summer is lovely and full of good things.
