As I Walk


Lisa Ferrer

As I walk through the park 
I see children playing on the swings, 
I hear basketballs hitting the cement.
Its so noisy!

I think about all the energy in motion. 
If energy had color what color would it be?
As I walk through a garden
I see light purple and dark purple flowers. 

I see dark green ivy and nicely cut shrubs 
And I think to myself what beauty life brings.
If life had color, 
What color would it be?

As I walk through a cemetery, 
I see old stones, new stones, 
Even graves with no stones. 
I can hear the voices of the dead 
Whispering to me in the wind. 

Its a chilling feeling 
And I think to myself 
If death had a color, 
What color would it be?
