Returning home, late in the evening to my nice Nottingham suburb.
Dad brought us here. So many years ago.
A dark night as the heart of summer approaches. Comfortably warm temperatures and the night time air has that familiar sweet scent that is reassuring. A sense of knowing and of continuity.
Through the darkness, the pavement walk alongside the daytime busy main road, yellow tee roses peer out, smelling sweetly. There is a Weeping Willow.
Home and The Smiths’ clarion call…
‘Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people
And I want to see light’
This is how it feels.
