sunset over Wales

a girl looks out the window

of a speeding train

my father gathers
blackberries from thick brambles –
old hands scratched by thorns

we watched the sunset
by the sea at summer’s end –
now, rain is falling

white hospital room
with no view from the window –
the last time I saw him
