Babes’ day out

Sun down and all around,

slivers in the salty air

of light and sound and laughter for keeps.

We sat there, prim as roses

and passed views awild

on all things, pebbles and pieces, boulders and basics.

Nimble as the ripples

that beat against the rocks,

we regaled one another

with stories, raucous and raw,

exchanged secrets and woes again,

refusing to be crabby even about

bosses and pouts domestic

as the sun kept time, downing us

in a lambent afterglow:

an evening to savour.


p.s: the first 2 lines are expected to remind you of a Belinda Carlisle song; one that i love πŸ™‚

p.p.s: This one’s dedicated to Neetika, R and M; we should do this more often πŸ™‚
