as the lozenge zips across the screen

marble-1489895_1920

all our tech
comes with sounds
– a ting, a poink,
…………………….a blue marble
bouncing down
into a small porcelain bowl
on your dresser,
the billowed curtains,
traffic and early cafes,
a wheel of gulls
and the first sunlight across your
still sleeping…

  1. Of all the gorgeous phrases and images here, I’m completely besotted with “traffic and early cafes”. That brings back a whole flood of memories. And I had a Mousetrap game also; I’m think we might be of the same generation.

  2. Love the way it all works together, Peter, the immediate, its circles with dashes of infinity, at the limit of the accelerating bounce and in the focus of marble, and the image fits perfectly.
