Caroline Flashback

An old Telstar hit playing on Caroline Flashback,
Home made bread and chunky marmalade with fresh coffee,
Then
Took a walk among the wood anemone,
Watched the fish squabble over crumbs,
A scent from the woods, not sure what flower,
Stepping over fallen trees,
Dipping under branches,
The woodpecker makes me welcome,
Sunshine with a nip in the air,
Redwoods kissing the sky,
Then
Back to Caroline Flashback,
Paul Jones, Manfred Man playing piano,
Retune to the news,
708 more deaths today,
Coronavirus takes its grip,
Stay at home,
You may be alone,
But you are alive.
