Half-marathon passing on a hot July day
Football-shirted hoverflies and fuzzy bees
Buzz above the flowers.
The sun beats down.
The slap, slap, slap of runners’ feet
Beat on tarmac,
Puff, puff, puff.
I stand, hosepipe raised in salute,
Be crazy enough
To be there too?
Poetry isn’t something I’ve posted before, but I enjoyed playing with the words.
