Walking To The Shops

With my income lower now
I am on a pension I live
without a car and either
walk or catch the bus.
I take my shopping bag or
trundler and notice things
I never saw from my car.

So many ride on mobility
scooters. I stand aside
for them. strollers full of
child and shopping fill up
half the footpath. Walking
frames with older folk are
easier to pass for the person
in the frame is still on foot
– like me.

Yet walking frames can
still surprise. One day a
walking frame approached
in rather jerky fashion.
A tiny dog bounced on a lead
tied to a handle of the walker
containing an elderly lady.
I thought it seemed quite
perilous – maybe she
just wanted action !
