On the table
waiting

kettle boils
straighten the cloth
the pot shines
polished
is she here
coffee
or tea
sugar
do I have sugar
I want to please
I want to shine
waiting
was that the gate
spoons
don’t forget
napkins
folded again
will she come
the door
open
looking
waiting
shine the pot
gleaming
straighten the cloth
I want to shine
for her

Sandstone building

The Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM 17: Stone Clad Building

When the City near my place, Grafton, was first settled there was an abundance of sandstone. Important buildings were built using sandstone. This building was one of the first banks in the city.

The road to where

The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Road
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Lost

Is this the road?
Should we come this way
Let’s stop and see
That sign, over there
But I can’t find that
On the map
Don’t worry
Look at the flowers
Don’t worry
Stupid map
We’ll find it
Perhaps another sign
We’ve stopped
We’ve come this way
Is this the road?

Dream

The Daily Word Prompt from Sheryl: Dream

Sitting back
making myself comfortable
waiting for
the hairdresser
to get ready.
“So sir”
she said
after a while
“Have you had
a dream recently”.
I wonder why
she would ask
as just last night
a dream
so vivid
so real
still rang within
my head.
“Funny you should ask”
I said
“A dream that
seemed almost
familiar”.
“Perhaps”
she said
“that it could almost be
Deja Vu”?
“Maybe” I said
as hair fell
about my shoulders.
“Can you tell me”
she said
scissors flashing
“I would like
to know as
I collect dreams”
“Of course”
I said
“My dream
was that
I was a monkey”
“Interesting”
she said
“But”
I said
“I dreamt
I was getting
my hair cut
by a monkey”
“That was
a strange dream”
she said
as she filed
my dream away,
brushing my hair.
