Out of the window

Cold wet washing on the line
In a photograph of mine
Lonely people, carry on
No more living where sun shone

Backyard pictures, Mum and Dad
Life is passing, that’s so sad
Children grow up, move away
I am missing you today

What a pickle I am in
Cannot finish, won’t begin
Dirty washing, all a mess
Isn’t easy, life’s a stress

Out the window photographs
Some show sorrow, some show laughs
I must record our neighbourhood
Before it all is gone for good.

Author notes

Just looking at the photo, and (as usual) playing with meter.
