The slow steady water hits the rocks
Distance buildings not really noticed unless it’s night
Kids’ yelling filling the air
Adults moving along the gate looking wondering..
Not a care in the world
Young and old on dates laughing
Faces so bright
Sparks of new love being found
Old love being reborn
Shadows becoming visible has the sunsets
Everything so peaceful and in place
Like we’re meant to be here
Such a beautiful place not appreciated
“Beauty is when you can appreciate it even when not perfect, it’s perfect”

    Dear Jalaya,
    The perspective of this photo is amazing and interesting because the background remind of New York. Is this New York?. I feel like I am the one walking down the path. The background is pretty with all the colors and river which stands out to me because I like rivers too. I like the angle of the picture because it makes it look more interesting to look at.

    It is a very peaceful place and it is basically somewhere that you go sit and think about all of the things you are going through and how you are going to recover from it. It is relaxing and laid back
