Picnics Past

PicNic Meditatioin

We saw her often
in our dog walks through the park
She was too weak and fallen
to share her comforts

hanging onto what remained
of picnic memories and ant parades
a stone propped up her sunken boards

Today her splintered wooden bones
stand stacked against the tree
that shaded her and I feel sad

The stone remains
a fitting marker for her grave
The gardener must have
taken her apart last night

Who stopped to sit and rest awhile
played picnic on her sturdy back
and wore her down

Beyond weathered from years
she had a story to tell I’ll never hear
now food for the soil
Jean E. Taddonio
