We arrive,tired, but excited, acres of green and a long driveway
are all that separate us from a few quiet days.
Bright lights,night tennis none of us know the rules.
We laugh and run, chasing balls.
A warm bath, deep soaking, so quiet no inside
Loading the car, clothes and snacks, bodied and toys.
A book from a long untouched stuck. Computers and phones,
Way to many cords.
The beach,the track,the 10km walk, no water bottles, tears
Military ruins, exploration a bus back.
The ferry, lunch, the view from shore to shore, history decorating the walls.
Packing up, all our things home.
