Ode to a jetty
A couple of weeks ago, we got the news that our beloved jetty (where we used to live)
Had been removed because it was old and rickety.
That was part of its charm:
We loved the way it curved and warped and bent;
The way it seemed to stretch out to infinity.
It was a big part of the children’s childhood —
Peaceful moments under big skies;
And it was there I enjoyed so many moments
With a best furry buddy.
RIP, dear old jetty – you will be missed!
(Luckily, I took a lot of photos of my favourite place
So there are still plenty to share with you.)
