One of those moments

Walking home tonight across Hungerford Footbridge I had a moment when I saw my Dad walking towards me. Hungerford Footbridge is not somewhere I would expect to see my Dad especially as he died nearly five years ago. But for a heartbeat it was as if he were still here and all the pain and suffering of his last few months on earth were erased. Just for a heartbeat.

See that, wot you just wrote?

That's a prose poem.

It worked on me.

Dreams are the worst - sometimes I wake up crying. It never goes away, but it does fade.
