These are the words for Friday Five at Poefusion: gravel, straw, ochre, crash, yoghurt.
Car wheels crunch on gravel drive
– squeals and laughter –
Jamie thuds to the floor,
totters through the open kitchen door
– both hands fully loaded.
paints on her twilight face
– hears the crash.
Framed by an upstairs window,
sees raspberry yoghurt
spray one crisp, creased trouser leg,
whilst the daub of straw and yellow ochre
find its niche among the daffodils.
