Silent Disco

DJ poised on stage to perform

The crowd wait in anticipation

He punches the air

The crowd roar

Then silence does prevail

The crowd dance

Punch their hand in the air

They dance the night away

Except for the odd shout

The music has disappeared

Head phoned adorns the crowd

Silence often is heard

No music, no singing

The crowd dances madly

They sing out of tune

They clap and whistle with delight

Once again the DJ not heard

Just the silent Disco is playing

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.
