Weekend

Stairways shake,
Little feet
Run unleashed.

Work & worry
Locked away,
Farewells bidden,
Ways part.

Fallen mangoes
Lie unpicked.
Hope reconciles
Drained souls.

Grumpy faces
Display cheer;
Festoons flutter,
Shoppers surface,
Evening smiles...

Dusk fades,
Last bus
Empties out,
Dogs laze
Under lamp-lit corners.
Bag lighter,
Heart easier,
I stroll home.
