The setting sun threw out a white arc
Of cloud as we walked down to the lake
To welcome the new jetty.
It is a good place to sit
And watch the coloured ribbons in the sky.

Novembers past speak of old jetties reaching out
To embrace the drama and gentleness of grey.

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.)

The geese flew away
Can you see them in the top left-hand corner?
Like falling leaves
Leaving behind the grey beauty of the jetty.
