Have I spoken to anyone today?

Or am I too busy writing?

Mornings are best,

walking our area, talking to neighbours.

Before this I would affair (not that I’d last

the number of downs).

I think everyone not travelling outside

their own place

is seeing the landscape

as a local staple.

Eating less

sophisticated food is another

of the the noticeable changes.

I get an iinkling, a coffee, a chat

and twelve hours to digest the day.

That’s the regeneration.

Jennifer’s an expert,

hungry after a dip in the sea.

The swimming speeds up your metabolism.

We go fasting for 16 hours

and food is always a pleasure.

Meeting Jennifer

for a small breakfast afterwards

feels like a feast.


With thanks to Jerome for sharing his lockdown experiences.
