Lime Pickles

Sunday Market at the Rocks
Colour jumps from the stalls
Handmade glass
Object d’art en masse

Two dreamers stroll
with thoughts
of sunny, smile filled
days in a kitchen
filled with heady
spicy smells.

Tamil pickles,
salty, hot, whole limes
sets taste buds tingling
begging for a taste
of cooling water…

Time to leave
with quickening pace
through jostling crowds,
to catch a northbound train.
