field iris
blossom in their brief season
before fading
among the tall grasses
the daughter I never had

you’re divine
I pick you
to die
but first to savour

about my failing eyesight
he says his life depends on
seeing a narcissus flower

your letters ceased

entwining the post-box
has lost its perfume

on the other side
of madness –
I hold fast to the calm,
the sanctity of trees
