003 – Two Meters

Two Meters 

The permissible walk in the sun can be fun
Chance to bask in the wonders abound
Trees bursting forth with nature’s blooming beauty
Embracing excursions with wondrous surround

The chance to escape confinements of home
Breathing deep, life affirming air
And the nodding of meaningful glances 
With those who you meet while out there 

Yet persistently nagging while you savour your kingdom
‘Spite the wonder of all nature’s features
Is the voice in your head, to all whom you pass
Shouting ‘back off – that’s never two metres!’

(c) Michael Gurner – April 2020
