Break In

The ladder was located conveniently in the lane
As the neighbours had foreseen some work.
It then placed to our side wall, up and over,
Down onto the wheelie bins, an easy land.

Of something not easily made. And there,
In a yard of my childhood they dared walk
Over tarmac where I played football, as

An imaginary football star, under an orange sun.

I liked this Sean. the fact that you described each place of the house shows how much you appreciate and love your home and how memories is attached to it.. Quite scary experience though to find out in the middle of the night that there are thieves in the house.. I hope that everything is ok now. HBH

You really expressed the feeling of being invaded that so many feel when there has been a break-in. Your images are clear, not cliche, and so your poem takes on this heavy picture. Good job. Raynette
