On Golden Swan #writephoto

And you may think I sail alone

That white elegance is paired for life

Once found

But there is a deeper love

Whose dancing visage

Plays more games of joy

Than any lover could.

In deeper pools, I look for you

Knowing the smiling ripples

To be your face…

          We’ve just got back to Adelaide for the final week of our trip. I sat down to try to catch up with blogging (amidst the lovely chaos of the grandchild) and your post popped up!

              It is… we’ll need a long ‘lie down’ after this, not to mention a new bank account! x

                Indeed! Australia is lovely, and the people are really friendly, but the post-Brexit pound is painful…

                I think that is the case wherever us Brits go at the moment! But the experience, priceless!

  4. A very beautiful poem. BTW, you can all come to South Africa for a holiday, GBP still looks good in Rand terms [smile].

      Thank you! We did holiday in Cape Town, about ten years ago, and loved it.
