Sunday morning run
fresh scented flowers
on the graves

April running
the cherry blossom
runs ahead of me

between raindrops
gathering his thoughts

April showers

sprouting

rows of umbrellas

cherry blossom
seeing it
through runny eyes

with work to do
I prefer the view
cherry blossom

April storm
too early
for cherry blossom

the hearse
drives past
cherry blossom

first a cloud
then a blanket
cherry blossom

the cloud
becomes a carpet
cherry blossom

the cherry blossom
I am reminded

varnish fumes and wet feet
sheltering beneath
the paper umbrella
rags
turning to riches
in the charity bag

onanistic pleasure stops
but his wife dies

gin + tonic
is it time yet?
retirement
boxing clever
giving and receiving
punches

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

glancing up a blue tit gone
