21st April 2018

snakes head fritillaries
shelter from the wind
ripening tulips

the silence
of a loft space.
filled with the smell
of old mortar
and the gaps between tiles.
Husks of dry flies
clustered in drifts
beneath the windows
and in paper potato sacks
my toy farm and doll's house
among the remnants of exercise books
detailing the life cycle of plants.
