Small Stone #13 January 2013

I wonder as I continue along the estuary,

past the ducks and the broken down houseboat,

if sitting inside their corrugated grey house

they feel the connection I feel

to the flag that waves carelessly in their garden,

do they know that I,

a plunderer at heart,

have stolen its soul as I walk away ???

jolly roger flag


    1. Thanks Gemma. I had to look twice when I saw it. This is the first time they have had a ‘jolly roger’ flying…they always have some sort of flag up.


    1. Thanks Madhu. I love walking there and finding a new flag waving against the bright blue sky…and of course the ‘jolly roger’ is always a welcome sight.
