Petals in the Park--By Barbara Siekierski--United States

Petals in the Park

Petals fall to the ground…
    smelling the fragrance
    as I walk on soft grass

Looking at the sky…
     seeing the birds fly
     as I soak up the sun

Morning dew…
     the day begins

Barbara Siekierski is a 64-year-old widow with a son that has autism. He goes to a day program for disabled adults 5 days a week. He lives with her the rest of the time.
