A shaded balcony Chlorine wafting from the pool like a Siren's song Children's laughter Scrape of colorful chalk, tattooing concrete Flowers in bloom Red petals dancing in summer's light Cyclist meandering by Wheels cracking and spokes creaking Wind in grass Dried morning trimmings blanketing the walkway Peaceful observer

Thanks for reading, Grace 🙂
And I’m glad you managed to get off the balcony – or are you still there? 😀
No, lol, I got off the balcony. My husband saved me 😅
Wonderful! I hope you were rescued soon.
