Boxed

They Call it “Modern Living”

as they rise up to the sky

colourful boxes in formation

thirty or fourty miles high

You would definately call it colourful

You could also call it cosy

You could even call it sardine-like

as you give your neighbours a nosy

Some like the format of it all

as they talk to the neighbours ‘cross the way

but some don’t like the shadows

its night in the middle of the day

Balconies round a patch of green

which after sundown, isn’t often seen

watching the clouds pass in the sky

and seeing the odd bird fly by

Set Free

She found the bird hobbling along the beach

and looked after it like her own

but like every child

it grew restless – to spread its wings

and go its own way

so they took a trip back to the shore

where the bird could take flight once more

and while the bird felt the joy of release

the girl felt an aura of peace
