Sitting on the Balcony

Sitting on the Balcony

by Elizabeth Challinor

Sitting on the balcony

Memories of the sea

Mock me

In metallic waves

Sweeping through the city

Light and fresh

The breeze is real

Sparks of birdsong sprinkle the air

Settle in my hair

The clapping of a bird's wings

Ripples through my soul
