Remembering an Afternoon Picnic Near Steyning

It smells of summer, he says.
Greenish.

We’re sitting at the edge of a field,
our feet soaking in a creek, and we’re

eating cheese and chutney sandwiches.
Drinking milky tea straight from a flask.

And I want this moment to last.
Beyond forever.

    • Not in the least n’all. It’s for those who do. Our anniversary is in a few days, and we’ll just do a nice medium rare steak at home, but no gifts. There’s enough crappy stuff in this house to dust already.

    • We don’t do Valentine’s Day. Mr M says it’s a commercial nonsense. Our anniversary is in a few days though, and we’ll have a nice meal somewhere. No gifts though. We don’t need more stuff.
