Sensing Lent 5: Blossom

View from Guildford Castle looking across to the Cathedral. 10.03.14

Where did you spring from 
with your candy pink splodges
bobbing in the uplift?
No blot on the landscape,
no backward glance at winter's frown. 
Like sticky potato prints
held by a child recalling
life is for laughing.
One dollop of your strawberry sundae 
slipping down the chin,
and we pretend that summer's coming in.
Above this town, upon this patch,
Not where the grass is greener,
but here and now,
the bricks in the sun,
the church on the hill, 
bloom where you're planted; 
blossom where you will.
