Small Happy Poem

How remarkable
the smell of leaves
and the fading light
a glimpse of salmon and gold
on the crown of the headland

The lamps come on quickly
we haven’t a clue
about real darkness
or the richness of silence

It’s cooling off
a day that was so blissfully warm
crunching of brittle leaves underfoot

I’m making fish and mash for supper
and I won’t forget your peas
or the way, later,
I’ll find my place in the crook of your arm
far from the loose wind of out there.
