We are sometime tourists,
forever wanderers
in open topped buses
tie-dyed amongst Mercedes’.
Stringy haired,
smelling of campfire smoke,
our pockets filled with menthol cigarettes,
tin whistles,
and skipping stones.  
We find ourselves
basking in the glow of laughter
under the dripdrip
of cave music.  
Beers and sticky chocolate bars
fill our tattered canvas bags,
alongside leather flip flops,
discarded for bare footed expeditions
amongst spiders
bloodchilling streams
and daisy chains.
Have just discovered this- I wrote it last year in the Lake District.

The suggester says, "Lake Windermere by ~tangerinedreams utilizes concrete imagery in such an exceptional manner. It definitely tantalizes the reader's senses!" ( Suggested by fllnthblnk and Featured by lovetodeviate )

The level of description is what really hits the spot for me.
The structure combined with the barrage of images makes this so readable and charming.

And for what it's worth, I've been one of those tourists =)

It's beautiful. I could illustrate it from only one line. I think I may, and I will link back to you if I do. Hope that's okay. :)
