Day 1 ~ Secrets
Fused together – restricting.
Forced to remain closed.
Confined inhabitants enclosed
and encased by their confidences.
Lips locked – unyielding.
Pressure building within;
filled to bursting with
remnants of a history.
Mind muddled – confusing.
Pieces of the puzzle form –
joined together pice-by-thought,
unrevealing in nature…
Day 2 ~ Train Ride
I sit in my rightful position.
A chair, upright and vertical.
I hear the wheels insistant hiss,
as we slowly begin our voyage.
I watch as scenes quickly appear
and disappear before us.
A variety of noises within the carriage
provides a bustle of activity
among the exhuberant travellers.
Watching as children produce
games, treats and books,
while parents watch with smiles.
Couples holding hands;
whispering sweet nothings
from anticipating lips to ear.
I feel content in my own
commuter world – sat with
book in hands and eyes on window;
seeing towns and cities pass by
in a hazy migratory blur.
I look on, reminded of Shakespeare;
“We few, we happy few,
we band of brothers;”
as our train pulls into another station
my stop – my destination – my arrival.
Day 3 ~ Handbag
My handbag reflects me as an individual;
it holds belongings to me that are personal.
A purse disclosing my current wealth
painkillers to reinstate my health.
A notebook to grip my internal notions -
alongside a book that evokes emotions.
A spare bag to carry what I acquire;
money in my purse slowly burning fire.
Business cards, as I'm always prepared
with a brush enclosed to arrange my hair.
A pen to scribble down important notes
and a silk scarf to warm my throat.
This is my bag that shows the true me
bringing forth elements of my identity.
What does your handbag say about you...
Day 4 ~ Happiness
Rainbows over clouds,
shining through trees;
illuminating flower beds.
Children sing through
slats in wooden fences;
whilst bouncing a ball.
Lavenders' scent fills
the space between
grass and tarmac.
Tasting the bread
being baked in ovens
in houses on pavements.
Sauntering between cars
into the wilderness
surrounding the city.
A lake filled with mallards
acts as a frame, watching
the sun gradually lowering.
The days close laying ahead.
