Across the foodbank door,
the broken thread
of a money spider.

Pockmarked all over the old pillbox bunker,
spraybursts of lichen.

Suddenly the stars
where they are supposed to be,
her hand in mine.

Moonlight
on frosted roof tiles
as a sugaring of stars.

Is it possible

to remember a shadow
that was never cast,
to celebrate the life
of a never born child
who did not stand here
in the full gaze of sunlight
but still leaves a shadow
that falls from the past
in the drifting darkness
of yesterday’s ash?

In the shadow behind dad’s photograph,
a deeper silence.
