26.4.13





































a while ago
i saw this flower project on the net
so we spent the afternoon picking wild + cultivated flowers 
from our garden, then the street






but like me she was drawn to the dry grasses
my reluctant model
with a chocolate mouth
and a toothless gap (already!)


i want to remember her
kicking off her wellies and lying back on the bench
by the defunct railway line
her eyes scanning the vast blue 
and her surprise that there wasn't a single cloud in the sky
