#poem 'In Recovery' - inspired by Colette Bryce's 'The Knack'

Blink twice,
then slowly open
your eyes.

Trace the outline
of the white
skirting boards -
did you notice
those patterns
before?

The shadows
that play in the curves
have their share
in making the patterns
of flowers.

If you can't see them,
don't rush.
You have time
to observe each dip as it curves.

You have all the time in the world.
