A Bit of Prose for a change !
RAIN ON A CARAVAN ROOF
Grey rolling clouds chased
by the black, spied on through curtain gap.
Blanket coddled boy, expectant on the bunk,
cold air kisses force small hands into cover
as a single tap, announces the show.
Staccato water drum roll on the metal roof,
adjusted summer storm tempo
does it's hypnotic best.
Half-hearted eyelid flutter,
futile gesture against soothing sound
Blanket noise, constant,
horns and shouts like rapier accents
hints of aural ingredients.
Mirror gloss men in their element
man of rags on cardboard,invisible contrast.
Diners in shop windows, on show
provide bus stop TV.
Fallen ice cream,vanilla pavement blemish.
Man with broom moving bits of stuff
from left to right.
Kids faces pressed on glass, blank stares.
Ninja Pigeon dancing amongst relentless footfall.
Serpentine queues, garish concrete blocks,
urban watering holes.
Fractured pieces of sky, trees amongst chaos
defiant in solemn stillness.
Ebb and flow, wax and wane.
