James Walton #59 Down sizing

leave behind
all rumour of magnolia
the rapping attraction of grevillea
embossed by seductive paws
and the crazy bingo hydrangea swaying
calling colours by the porch,

gather now
to the small vacancy
traffic through the drive way lounge
a highlighted number on the verge
and this barren displaced anonymity
speaking names no one hears,

students sleep
all buzzy in unease
where roots break up the pavement
searching for grounded rain
above the traveling dreams
their old homes still searching


  1. James, there's a lovely haunting, echo-ish nature about Downsizing - especially the last stanza. Love it!

  2. how animal alive the green world grows

    and we are roots blind groping too
