Reality Check

Reality Check

Turning around I saw the deep blue sky,.

A swooping kestrel dived behind a hedge.

I saw children laughing, being pushed on swings in the local park.

I sat on a bench and watched a game of football.

The chimes of an ice cream van broke the silence,

I walked over and looked at the array of choice

The colourful pictures promising a delight to my taste buds.

I heard the ringing of bells, no wait, it was my alarm clock.

Reaching out I silenced the incessant noise and reached for my cane.

Time to join reality for another day
