12th February 2019

Chesterfield gull
in a mid-air fight
angry crow

a promise to the future
scattering flower seeds
along the border,
The lupins on the M5
scattered by my father
when he stopped to help
someone. Anyone.
a paper bag full of seeds
collected from his garden.
It brings me joy
to pass a bank of lupins in full bloom.
You still make me smile, Dad.
