Garden

Two fat cats in a terracotta pot

A ten foot pool and the water’s not hot

Weather beaten furniture set up on the grass 

Tea light candles glowing in a glass

Little wooden houses dangling on strings

Squeaks and creaks from the trampoline springs

Stones from Thailand, shells from Wales 

Pirate ships with jolly rogers painted on the sails

An old Irish wolfhound under the tree

A chihuahua with her tongue out sitting on my knee

Pizza oven overgrown with ivy and plants

Rocket ship pegs holding socks and pants

Water pistols, rubber ducks and pieces of driftwood

Music from the speakers assault the neighbourhood
