A sudden reveal

I wasn’t aware of the nebulous smog,

the silent to smother lullaby,

as it crushed cold reason

courting doubt and caution,

beyond mindful static,

until I passed the baker’s window,

my eyes flitting from

apple pies to ghost picnics

by the Abbey ruins,

where the river slowly steals the bank

as it corners wide.

A voice from everywhere announced


and a sudden reveal, an instant clarity

appeared, like the bedroom light banishes

a winter dark.

I love her filled every and all,

if only I’d bought apple pie sooner.
