The Runner

Heart
Racing
Blood
Racing;
I run,
And the
World
Runs
With
Me.

img_0001_400Running,
Running,
Towards
The sea.

Corpuscles
Flexing,
Sinews
Flexing.

Rhythmically
Running
Over the
Bridge
Towards
The shore;
Running,
Running,
With
Jasmine
Scented 
Air in
My
Hair.

Whirring
Past tree
Lined
Boulevards
Painted
In green.

The
Oak and
Chestnut
Trees;
Botanical
Gardens
Splashed
In red.

Past
Lunchtime
Crowds
Thronging
In city
squares;
Past
Colourful
Clowns
And
Performing
Buskers
In city
Streets.

Running,
Running;
Blood
Racing,
Heart
Racing.

Past
Old men
Playing
Chess
In the
Park;
Or
Ponytail
Girls
Lying
Under
Trees.

I return
Home,
As ferries
Playfully
Dance
On blue
White
Flecked
Waves
under
The
Bridge.

At peace
With the
World;
Serenity
Flooding
My soul,
As I rest
On the
Steps of
The
Opera
House.

Run,
And the
World
Runs
With
You.
