L3 (Day 32)

Carrow Hill blurs; mist

gives way to an easterly wind

moving people urgently along the street

except those that can’t, who shuffle

wrapped in padded coats.

.

Thorpe St Andrew beyond the railway

behind a grey shroud of rain

is the backdrop to the shopping park

lit bright at noon.

Darkness is upon us.

.

Snow is due overnight

ten centimetres or more

to settle with the flood water

already turning to ice.

.

There is little distinction

between days, so I feel

the need remains

to count the nights
