June in Melbourne,
25th June 2022

In Australia…

there is warmth and winter sun,
playful heedless fun,
…we just don’t get it.

Road-side stalls selling mangoes,
attitudes relaxed ..time slows,
…we just don’t get it.

Azure blue waters and palm trees,
umbrellas in drinks, island breeze,
…we just don’t get it.

Instead we live, in the cold and the drizzle,
there is no logic, it’s a riddle,
…we just don’t get it.


Prompt: We just don’t get it
