Summer Tollwood

This week’s photo prompt is provided by S. Writings. Thank you S. Writings!

What we did last summer
We had some fun, cycled, hiked
Had some grill in the garden
Went to parks and beer gardens
Also ate tons of ice-creams
Best part was the summer Tollwood
At Olympiapark with lots of concerts
“It’s a matter of attitude” that was the motto
Tom Jones, Joan Baez, Patti Smith – cool
Their concerts were smashing
Cosy markets with different handicrafts
From India and other parts of Asia
I bought a scarf and a frilly summer dress
Then there were these vibrant painted cows
Two cow sculptured from old car parts
Painted and were centre pieces of Tollwood

Carpe Diem #763 outdoor concerts

after the concert
my souvenir is the tune
I can hum

call of the flute
answer of drums
among redwoods

flute concert
in the surf sea stones
move at sunset

flute concert
speaking Japanese fluently
the shakuhachi

island fishermen
singing with foreigners
learning to clap

calling through the trees
with two notes

sultry summer night
the sound of the shakuhachi
deepens the silence

piano concert
the man and his piano
appreciating him

rhapsody in blue
we got the rhythm of it
at outdoor concert

fresh air and music
summer concert at its best
Yuja plays Gerschwin
