Warm space

posted in: Poems 2024 | 0

I walk into the space known as the “warm space”.
A welcoming space
Offering refreshments and cup a soup.
Where individuals and families can meet up safely.
Parents supervise their children doing homework
All sockets are in use with telephones, tablets and computer plugged in.
I overhear snippets of conversations.
I feel a sense of belonging, a sense of community.
With the rise in energy prices and the return of the colder weather
I am grateful that I can be part of this warm space
Until 7.30pm
When it is closing time
Until the next day.
