January/February 2020

WEDNESDAY 29 20

Clumps of daffodil
leaves, clear green, growing on a
verge. No yellow yet.

THURSDAY 30 20

On a whim I buy
an umbrella. As soon as
I’m outside, it rains.

FRIDAY 31 20

Some tawdry colours
In Downing Street but I’m still
a European.

SATURDAY 1 20

Black and white robots
or aliens stencilled on
a boarded-up shop.

SUNDAY 2 20

Punxsutawney Phil,
if he were here, would have seen
his shadow briefly.

MONDAY 3 20

The heavy scent of
Hyacinths, royal blue, lined
up on the pavement.

TUESDAY 4 20

A few stars between
wisps of cloud. A cat with white
paws runs up the drive.
