Comfy Slippers – A Poem

Arc De Triomphe – Image by herry wibisono from Pixabay

Early morning rain fluffs yesterday’s duster making new the day,

Quiet, shuffles to the occasional swooshing on the distant highway.

But, hinders not familiarity like well-worn brown comfy slippers

In this new Plymouth; a renewed life, a land of unpainted futures:

Where triumphant arches, offer their shadows like sun umbrellas

Where bridges, markets and parks, once basic necessity’s stores,

Become intimate panoramas; thriving nods to lifestyle La bohème 

Opera songs of what it might be like when one is truly, at home.


*Inspired by William Wordsworth’s poem, “Composed Upon Westminster Bridge”
