Sydney

No real surprise that

flights were all cancelled

cause of the wind in the night

that made us feel like the house

could be airborne any minute

Or was that the glorious wine

from Patrick’s private collection 

that he brought to the stormy dinner?

It was a long weekend

not for shortening

so we took a cab back into town

had breakfast in Joes Garage

then crossed the road to see

what Warhol had to say

pretending we had arrived

without a hitch.

Rain like in the movies

straight down

and bouncing off the concrete

like we were

at the thought of being together

in Manu’s restaurant

in record stores

sharing spells with witches

and vodka martinis at Morrisons

Late in the evening

home in the early morning

  1. Hi Ashley, as I sit back in my bed waiting for my brother and sister in law to stir, its raining in the quiet leafy Johannesburg called Sunninghill. There has been no sun for two days, yet that’s ok. I feel content to listen to the early morning chorus of Ibis, laughing doves, turtle doves and a large number of other Symphony feathered creatures. I’m pondering what my journey past Soweto will be and whether I should have taken out extra insurance.
    Well suffice to say I really enjoyed your blog today and look forward to sponging up more of your creative content. Way to go my man!!

There has been no sun for two days, yet that’s ok. I feel content to listen to the early morning chorus of Ibis, laughing doves, turtle doves and a large number of other symphonied feathered creatures competing for the loudest and most magical bird call. I’m pondering what my journey past Soweto will be and whether I should have taken out extra insurance.
