The Solution

I’ve spent the whole day in the garden
but I’ve not moved very far
as lockdown means the space I’ve got
is not spectacular
I can walk from the front room
to the garden out the back
thirty metres give or take
so not much of a track
The stairs afford an up and down
but some care there must be had
as they’re quite narrow so a trip
down them would be quite bad

So I’ve come up with a solution
which works quite well for me
and keeps me in the sunshine
out the back and fancy free
It’s to listen to my music
on my headphones nice and loud
and walk round in a circle
on the grass as I’m not proud
It’s not a bad idea
as depending on the length
I can walk out there for ages
and keep building up my strength

And I get through lots of music
whilst I’m exercising there
moving to the rhythm
a fluidity to share
I can even if I’m careful
close my eyes and drift away
when walking in my circle
in the middle of the day
It’s a solution that will work I think
until this lockdown’s done
and we again enjoy the freedom
of a long walk in the sun

    I have the same “problem” except I don’t have stairs. Well written.

    Brilliant, Jem. A great idea. Not for me as I can’t walk or see any more. I too have only a very small garden. It is uneven and rises too, from the back of the house. Would love to adopt your idea. Love the poem 😊
