Delivery

Expecting a delivery
I hear a bang
like the slam
of a van door.
Through the window
nothing, no-one there.

Then I see it;
the splat,
the smear of blood
on the pane.
I find no sign
of injured bird —

but oh
how it must have hurt.

Frozen

Snow covered footpaths,
despite warm sun still frozen.
Postman did not come.

We had our first delivery of post yesterday after a week of nothing – apparently the postmen were not allowed to deliver due to ‘health and safety’. That’s a new one on me, never before have I known the postman to miss more than the occasional day due to the weather!
