Writings and Witterings

beside the sea


he sees formal french
or a prussian
blue sea
sees an armada
of silky sailboats
on smooth duvet water
watched by foreign
friends seated
or standing
on soft silver sand
in their sunday best

  5. Lovely Polly – you have captured something special – also love the alliteration.

  6. quite picturesque, and a delight to read aloud!

  7. I think I saw this peeking over the edge of my blankets once… Nice.

  8. I like the idea of going out to be seen even if you have no reason to be out! I am such a home body now… it’s SUCH a bad idea!

  9. Lovely, do people still have a Sunday best? Probably a fading part of our culture :)
