Date: August 16, 2015

the trees in leaf
around my mother’s gravestone
I hear no birdsong

cyclists in lycra all along the towpath the scent of cow parsley

milky light
slats cross the window
tail of a sleeping cat

cafe writing on the Royal Mile –
sunlight on a white convertible,
on cobbles

trailing
forget-me-nots
the river today
not even
an insect’s sound

Hiroshima Day, 2015
