Sunday Afternoon at Hyde Park

 I lie under canopies of green
On green grass that is annoyed
Its leaves jabbing me, before submitting
To my weight
Ants grateful
For new discoveries
Explore legs smoothing with age
And rush to savour the odour of flip-flops
Lovers enthralled with each other
Oblivious to adventurous ants
And annoying grass
Feed their hunger with kissing
Canopied light of dappled leaves
Living mosaic of green and gold
Quiver in heat sodden air
Trying to keep cool
How long has it been?
Since I have lain like this
Under canopies of green
I wonder
Will I
Feed my hunger
With kissing my lover
Under canopies of green
