Jetty cafe Toronto

Beside the boardwalk

tables & bright red chairs.

Clatter of crockery at the kiosk.

Aromas float on a light

salt-seasoned breeze –

coffee, fish and chips, hamburger.

 

Families chatter.Kids jump from jetty

Older folk natter.

Children jump from the jetty

splashing and squealing.

 

White sails glide against

green hills and blue sky.

 

Nearby, small bright-coloured sailsSailability Toronto 01

as small, special boats bob by –

the disabled get their chance

to enjoy what others take for granted.

 

Wavelets carry sun-sparkles landward

where they sssh against the shore.

 

An old man plays old tunesSailability Toronto 02

on a keyboard organ –

soothing background tones,

a grey felt hat at his feet

upturned to receive our thanks.

 

Sunday mornings don’t get

much better than this.

  1. Wonderful description Linda. It’s the kind of Sunday I enjoy. You have a marvellous way with words. Loved your images as well.

  2. Your Sunday was a heck of a lot better than ours. Yui had a fever to go along with her cold and coughing which meant we couldn’t do much. Would have loved to have been there.

    • So sorry Yui is ill Paul! I hope she is better soon. I wish you were both here with us on Sunday, and I hope next Sunday is a good one for you.
