A colourful story

Colourfully painted
they have seen many days
Sitting next to smokestacks
on England’s waterways
Functional yet lovely
water for the boat
Keeping engines running
flotilla here afloat

Inanimate, their story
over all the many years
would cover several pages
but will never reach our ears
So here’s some inspiration
to help you on your way
Captured when I saw them
in the sunshine yesterday

    Lovely poem Jem. Containers are used as dwellings by poorer people in SA, but do not look this attractive.
