Enjoy the Blossom

special children
celebrate his birth –
a special child

proud to be the
hind legs of the donkey

sometime Boswell
seeking Dr. Johnson,
must be straight

who’d have thought those
iron ships would float

bracket fungi
form a bracelet
round a rotting trunk

moonlit mounds of
chiaroscuro cow

on the wall
some paintings of a wall,
Tate Modern

global warming
melts the ice at parties

cooking wine
and dimps and dog-ends
ah, when we were young

Margaret Thatcher
curdling all the milk

new beginnings
underneath your feet
the earthworms stir

never mind the fruit
enjoy the blossom

A Junicho renku by John E. Carley, UK
