A sunny day on a bank holiday morn
walking through the local green
there’s not a cloud in the sky
but what’s that dark mass behind you?
nothing to fear – its only your shadow
Sat on a park bench, enjoying the shade of a tree
watching the local wildlife hop from branch to branch
looking out onto the duckpond, who’s that upside down?
feathers of brown, feathers of yellow
look up from the water – its mother goose and her brood
Iconic Shapes, planted outside the Science Museum
create sounds of laughter for all who pass by
Seaside amusement, in the city centre
not a hall of mirrors, its more fun than that
as you and your friends lose pounds in an instant
with rubber ducks
image of your face in the soapy water
destroyed by the simple act
of dropping the soap in the bath
