Going Home (Centre of the Sun)

Going Home (Centre of the Sun)

Sunday afternoon drinks
the centre of the sun
sinks into casuarinas known
when the day is nearly done
we are going home.

Wave-ridden girls saved
my inner mother reborn
bathed in saltwater spa foam
cool air on weekend’s curtain drawn
we are going home.

Damp towel clings
sand on feet where washing
brings squeaky thongs to moan
I get to think while walking –
we are going home.


Update 3-October-2013: Shared today with my Bangalow Writer’s Group colleagues who suggested removing “at” (beginning of line 2).
