blue skies
picking out cornflowers,
iris, aquilegia

old photos
labelled in Italian
scanned into the PC
a digital footprint
they never expected.

dead battery
in my phone
thanks to the washing machine
everything works

so a replacement ordered
Thanks, small savings sum.

may blossom
scents the air with summer
clouds of midges

dog's terror
of a weekend visitor
leads her to hide in the garden
settling behind the shed
shunning comfort
and food
even after the guest has gone
her legs
shaking with fear

overcast
ramsons fade away
peony blooms

I don't have poetry
in my heart today
too many nightmares
and a lack of sleep
At least
I still have hope.

overnight rain
settles into morning clouds
chimneytop magpies

Thankyou, but no
I don't want any
especially not now
so goodbye, sir,
goodbye
