The golden stone glows, rich with midday sun,

man-made cliffs that bookend a verdant ocean

of bathing sun-seekers and children cut loose,

chasing balls across the grand green expanse,

flitting past us like flies, riding bright plastic scooters

along grey tarmac rapids as the current sweeps us

onwards towards an island, a monolithic outcrop,

a gleaming rock where we stop, to preen and to roost.

  1. A picture well crafted . . . I am left wondering its source . . . Its imperative . . .

    • Thanks Peter! As you said before, I write more narrative style poetry usually, so I thought I’d give something different a shot. Bath is beautiful, you should check it out sometime 🙂

If you enjoyed the poem. please leave a comment.
