I haven’t heard from you
a postcard of Powerscourt Gardens;
pink hydrangea, celestine orchid,
marble statues and urns.
Your scribbles read in a blur.
In the silence of a spring/summer hiatus,
some citrine, some pink,
squint through their leaves,
a shadow reels under magnetite sky,
clouds are the colour of bones.
Somewhere someone weeps.
