tendrils crept up balcony
t’was our washing line!
Inspired by but not for Contest
100% true story no poetic licence at all!
Many years ago my parents had a villa in Spain, my sister and I would go and stay. We’d wash our smalls and swimming costumes and drape them on the balcony wall to dry. One windy day we discovered them adorning the Bougainvillea. It hadn’t escaped our neighbour Zac’s notice and from that day on it was known as ‘the knicker tree’
