The spoon pierces its thin crust, delving into the pool of thick, dark brown sauce within. An hour’s work is gone in moments, too sweet and sticky to resist.
They bob on the pool’s surface, abandoned. Plastic primary colours contrast with the sunlit, brilliant blue of the water. The joyful babies who played with them are gone, but still they float, awaiting their return.
They move over the wall like water. A furry head turns and a tail starts flicking with excitement. Gone in a flash, the moment for chasing has passed.
It sits on our drive, filling up with the detritus of someone else’s life. Their vision of our bathroom finally leaving. A new start for us, their influence gone from our lives.
The frame it once wound itself around is gone. One lonely post remains for it to climb. Yet still it reaches, grasping at thin air, desperate to grow, to live.
I watch as it hits and bounces off everything it touches. It makes a deafening rattle on the conservatory roof, like gravel. In a flash, it is gone, and the sun shines.
