Goodbye dear uncle

My wonderful uncle Alan died last week and it’s his funeral today on the other side of the world. Although we can’t be there in person, we’re very much there in spirit.

This is for you, my dear uncle, and for your family, sent with all my love.

If I could I would send you a field full of beautiful flowers
fields, meadows, olive, olive groves, flowers, herbal ley, poppies, mustard, morocco, moroccan, middle atlas
and great bundles of lotus blossoms

and brightly coloured pot plants

I would send garlands of sunshine yellow marigolds

and brilliant bougainvillea climbers
bougainvillea, bougainvillia, morocco, creeper, climber, chefchaouen, blue, purple, pink, dark
and I would have it all delivered by bicycle!

And then, because not just blossoms grow on trees…

but hearts too
