vernal pleasures

Blue skies over London. Trees coming into leaf, each day a brighter green. Blossom everywhere – a plethora of white and pink froth, shimmering yellow. Bare legs. Toenails painted deep red. Making salads – Greek salad, beetroot salad with garlic yoghurt. Fresh, sharp tastes. Eating Greek salad listening to Greek music with the windows open, pretending I’m in Greece. English asparagus in the greengrocer’s. Wearing sunglasses. Thinking about sunscreen. First drink outside. Sipping rosé, late afternoon, reflected sunlight. Days still lengthening. The promise of more to come.
