Sparklers in the dark

one to mark national refugee week..................


Sparklers in the dark


They came

2 grown ups

2 children

And a carrier bag.

Pockets and stomachs empty

Hearts full of hope.

They came from a green visual paradise

To the unremitting grey

Of an urban North West December.

And they breathed the colours of life

Into the tattered and tired house

They filled the weary teary street

With sunshine smiles and exotic eastern promise.

And out of the darkest satanic mill town

Shone forth celestial light.
