Sunday morning run
fresh scented flowers
on the graves

April running
the cherry blossom
runs ahead of me

April showers


rows of umbrellas

cherry blossom
seeing it
through runny eyes

with work to do

drives past
cherry blossom

then a blanket
cherry blossom

the cloud

cherry blossom

the cherry blossom
I am reminded

turning to riches

boxing clever
giving and receiving

(ekphrastic on Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder 31 March 2018)
spring bloom
hay fever
the final straw

glancing up a blue tit gone
