Water

I was out of town on the weekend, so didn’t post. So by way of recompense, here is a three-part poem, dedicated to Toowoomba, where I spent ten years of my life…

 

Water

 

I

 

Sunlight hitting the table

Midges around our lunch

We move over

 

II

 

Drive through town

Smell of rain on the wind

Brings back forgotten memories

 

III

 

Now we watch TV

Water

On the streets

Washes everything away

    All of these are so evocative, but the last one is hauntingly beautiful – the familiar turned surreal, so that even our memories are undone.
