Going Somewhere?

Roadworks, traffic, go.
Park the car. Take shuttle bus.
Check in and drop bags.
Gah! Flight delayed! Transport is
an exercise in patience.

Scribblings by Sarah

Walking Away

What a slippery time has been had this year.
A shock really, that I haven’t been broken.
Always taking care to screen my face and
lock my tongue, so it doesn’t run away.

I have leashed a chain around my thoughts
as I realise the shards of discontent.
Instead of hitting out, I hit the grass with my shoes.
A walk can always cure what ails you…
