Yard Duty

Meeting running



Rain threatening but groups remain

gathered outside


on a misson

beyond trees

approached by grinning little boy

shoelaces untied and jacket tied

around his waist

a student but from the past

oddly enough

a tug on my sleeve

grin and run

like he always did

oddly enough

walking on to grand old house

empty, brick


light area opens up, home like, table and cloth, pram, unfinished meal on window sill, half eaten porkchop and apple slice

dried but not there long

sound there, women, music, is it music?

soft voices, gentle laughter

oddly enough

door unlatched

way to leave

mown lawns, great expanse

leading to a busy highway

hidden house

oddly enough
