I meant to say
that the garden looked beautiful
in the sunlight
with the shadows
highlighting its brilliance
like a ray-gun slice of reality
– and the bluebells spot lit
as though almost
in a Star-Trek transporter beam.
But then the light changed
and the clouds moved.
Somewhere in another street
a dog barks
and the cars continue
to impersonate the sea.

    Hi, Lydia. Seems ages since we had chance to say more than ‘hi.’
    I really like this, especially ‘and the cars continue/to impersonate the sea.’ 🙂
    They still are…

  2. Thanks, Jayne – and lovely to e-chat at least. Hope all your things are going well and we will talk soon! x
