Late Flowering

I don’t like farmland bursting into flower
on the edge of town
red splashed with poppies rising
tall above vetches and secret plants.

All this bright colour

a last brave show
of hope from seeds
freed from farming
for a brief time until


all is lost to concrete.

Did you get the message I sent you? I don't have your email address and the Bookcrossing PM system isn't always reliable.
