Valsa George

Simple Verse. No.7 - Morning Walk

Walking is a good sport
You’ll never rust or rot
Fresh air you inhale
That’ll keep you hale

Toxic air you exhale
Lungs rid of impurities stale
Strange vistas unravel
Over them you can marvel

Many greet you with smiles
Make you forget the tedium of miles
Limbs when allowed more rest
Body’s natural rhythm, it will arrest

When people are in motion
They would forget all commotion
Walking relieves you of much tension
And life parades in new dimension

    Very nice write. I for one happen to love walking. You get
    to see all of the colors of leaves changing. The Autumnal breeze
    flows all around you and the mind gets a real workout plus
    the body stays in motion that will do it a world of good. Lovely. (Report) Reply

    With robotic life style man doesn't have time to rest and pace with life's vital pleasures further adding up to illness to the body hence little physical exercise is a must to have good health!

    Wonderful read mam and as Dinesh Nair ji said it has the other impact too! Keen observation by you dear Sir! (Report) Reply

    I love walking, particularly with my dog Clara. Most people greet me with a 'hello', but it is alway nice to come home afterwards. (Report) Reply

    Many resolve to walk and find a reason to skip it, myself included. Reading your poem provides the impetus, motivation, and inspiration to get out and move. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    But I see these morning walkers with a different view. In the morning they are seen on the smooth sides of the roads and when one drives forward they walk before and announce indirectly ' mind your vehicle'.
    Madam Valsa, these health maniacs are slowly becoming a menace on the roads...

    I am afraid, after reading your poem some of our poets will be adding to the woes.

    Walk safe, walk alone and kindly avoid an army of walkers. (Report) Reply

    a nice one Mam...yes morning walk is indeed healthy and soothing and relieves of all tensions and commotions.......but difficult for those who are lazy and rise up late in the morning: -) (Report) Reply

    Walking is wonderful exercise, especially when out in the country - very healthy and good for the soul. (Report) Reply

    May those legs carry you far
    And that mind remain ever young
    Do all those things that age does bar
    And live explosively with those lungs............

    I often wonder with the chaotic traffic in Kochi how do people walk. It is not just the pollution but also the risk of being hit that worries me. Very good poem - keep writing. (Report) Reply
