Storying Sheffield

Floating Bandstand

By ET. This poem is part of the ‘Of Other Space‘ series.

Warm, comforting and blue,
It floats seamlessly along the water –

amongst a sea of quotidian incidents,

Carries by the bygone notes of
soft jazz mellowing into the summer night sky

As the moon casts its silvery spotlight

Perhaps it strikes a chord to see something
that was once so full
so empty.
