My loved one’s health renewed
The smell of hops in the middle of town
The place you know well seen through fresh eyes
Warm. Napping. Where am I? Waking
Fears allayed
The crisp tear of cotton
Rising from a summer afternoon nap with that same, undulating visual image of three letters linking – UVW
The sheer joy of our garden
Fears confirmed. My loved one’s health declines
The car acquires a memory – this route between home and hospital
And one simply paints, and paints simply
A life buoy on a beautiful, untrustworthy ocean

‘All that is not ladder falls away’
