Part 1 of 6 in the Jemverse ‘At Home’ series

At home on a Sunday
is where I’d rather be
But I’m travelling to Birmingham
a long way from the sea
Five hours on a railway train
to reach my destination
with a good book and some music
to ease my consternation
Not a choice I’d welcome
though I did have plenty warning
As I need to be in Birmingham
for early Monday morning


Today marks the start of another Jemverse mini-series. Six poems collectively making up the ‘At Home’ series. Photo – reflections of the street captured in the New Street station canopy in Birmingham – Jempics.
