Chequered life

The cartons and the styrofoam

left on the beaches

birds fluttering over the sea

the rumble of the clouds

the transient rain that could fill thousands jugs with water

dread and apprehensive

over the hourglass reciting the story of the man from the sea

insatiable, whooping, hollering to the roustabouts

stew or lentils as a dish?

is there a commune anywhere anytime real?

indignant to those who don’t understand pollution

those who smatter and josh, who do indiscretions

who are not solemn

is it going to be a chequered flag in life anytime soon?

a success perhaps?

perspiring in a savour of glint and a glare because of the ability to help others.
