Floor beneath my feet

Tiny feet

Vast floors.


I remember floors

Beneath my little feet.

Desert sands and picnics.

Bare floors and kitchen sets.

Stairs and tiny rooms.

Staring down and groped.


I remember floors

Bricked floor

And badminton games.

Grassy garden

And catching balls.

That vast space behind the home

Empty expanse of earth.


Floors under construction

Smelling of a new life

Rushing room to room

Yellow pink graphite floors

Playing home

Skipping ropes.

I remember the floors

Of my mother’s home.
