rhubarb crowns -
a dessert
fit for kings


sunshine
in the toddler’s hand
a daffodil


fields of stubble -
after harvest
I recall dad’s hugs


floating candle
in the bowl
a new moon


knowledge ravaged
by dementia
empty bookshelves


refugee
in a bulging rucksack
her angora rabbit


rotting teeth
a row of condemned
tombstones
