Dear William

DEAR WILLIAM

Blooming before us
Daffodils remain speechless
For what are words worth?

Spring Messengers

SPRING MESSENGERS

Daffodils whisper
Quietly beneath the wind
Who will hear their voice?

Spring Fragrance

SPRING FRAGRANCE

Blooms proliferate
Fresh threads join the timeless web
Reseeding itself

At Times A Struggle

AT TIMES A STRUGGLE

It’s easy to love
flowers, along with cats and dogs.
People? Not so much.

Lynne’s Demise

LYNNE’S DEMISE

Gone you are now then
Flowers are all that remains
I can offer you

Terminal II

TERMINAL II

He does the shopping now
Getting out is too much
But we don’t mention that
At least there are flowers

The new snowdrops are out
As the fresh year spins on
Words like splendour, wonder
Set amongst all this pain

God’s Fancies

GOD’S FANCIES

Pansies nod their heads
As butterflies flutter by
… Les penseés de Dieu

Joy In Bloom (British Summertime II)

JOY IN BLOOM

Busy buzzy bees
Rainbow colours all over
June is busting out!

Absence

ABSENCE

It’s fine to see here on this warm October day
The orange of maize heads drying on that roof
Reflecting in the marigolds below
To sit among the rocks and read
Watching butterflies hover in the sun
But missing is the smell of new mown grass
That scents the air of far off England’s summer
