On the Terrace (SunWinks! 14 September 2014: Gently Down the Stream)

P1100679 mod sharp 25 signed

Late afternoon
On the terrace

The sun is warming my back
He’s facing me, eyes shut
A jackhammer in the distance
Drrrr drrrr drrrr drrrr drrrr
A drill in the neighbour’s house
Then a hammer
Bang bang bang
Rainbow lorikeets are holding a meeting
Noisy buggers
Our canary is tweeting inside
Sweet bird
Still with us
Although very old
I look up
A jet plane in the blue sky
High above
A white speck
Gliding by quietly


A siren’s blaring in the distance
Coming closer
Then it stops
Someone’s hurt
No doubt

Peaceful afternoon
On the terrace
