Mum’s Garden

Sitting in mum’s backyard tonight. Surrounded by overgrown trees and shrubs; the ground a carpet of fallen leaves; every minute or so a sting of a mosquito bite; dense oxygen filled air; the occasional movement of leaves from fluttering birds eager for a feed before the night comes; her garden, a cave that hides me from the outside world.


– is this the correct use of semi colans? I really don’t know.

One thought on “Mum’s Garden”

  1. Semi-colons are a pest. I never know, either. I know the colon denotes a list starting….
    But, the semi…what the heck, it's artistic license, two linked elements in one sentence. Who is to judge us???
    I like the sound of that garden. x
