Poetry Thursday - found on instagram

So visual. Such a picture from my own Canadian childhood - my family were immigrants, though there was no grandfather, and we only passed through Montreal on the way west to Vancouver. Growing up, there were many neighbours from other parts of the world, and England - the other side of the world, it seemed - was for me one of the exotic places. Now I live in England! As I get older even the familiar places are starting to reveal their exotic undercurrents, things to make you wonder.
