Snippets of a Cycle by Laura Hyde

Day 2                                                                                                                        

First light,

On to the path,                                                                                            

Puppy and tree shake snow

.

Day 128

Blackened trowel works soil.

And dozing in my lavender

Next door’s cat.

.

Day 25

Not my blonde hairs,

Blamed our Labrador,

And yet…

.

Day 358

Christmas Eve, church bells

A drifter hangs wet stockings

From a naked branch.

.

Day 300

Power cut,

Dust from my computer screen

Moonlit.

.

Day 47

In funeral cars

White lilies lie

Who mourns the flowers

When they die?
