Red Flag Day

red flag

Eyes closed, the sounds at the beach

Waves roaring like lions

Crashing as they hit the pebbles

Wind whistling around my ears

Howling around the wind breakers

Seagull’s screeches muffled

Carried away by the wind

Squeals of children playing

Clang clang of the rope on the flagpole

.

Opening my eyes I see the waves

They hurtle towards the pebbles

Spray bounces into the sky

The clouds race across the blue sky

Sun disappearing behind the clouds

The flag flapping at the top of the flagpole

It’s a red flag day.
