The playground


Echoes of children playing.
The fallen tree trunk 
became a ship
a fort
a balancing beam.

Now a haven for spiders and bugs.

Water pools in a crevice.
Birds bathe.
Mozzies breed.

Hmm, I think I'm a bit fixated on mozzies at the moment.

Thankyou Becky, I appreciate your encouragement. We did have a good weekend, I'll write something about it later on, it was a bit out of the ordinary for us.
