Wise garden gate


image

Garden gate
Creaks apologetically,
Proudly protecting
The spirited woodland
Flowers,
Towers of ivy
Secreting lovers
Poetry
And plump
Opinionated
Peonies standing proudly.

Old  Boots and clogs
Scuffle, shuffle.
Dainty slippers,
Hide amongst old oaks,
Waiting to be found.

Elegantly embroidered
Shoes,
Skipping beneath
Romantic boughs,
Pregnant with blossom.
Whilst they whisper
Their wildest thoughts,
Chastity keeps
Them apart.

Dream homestead


image

Paper white,
Dream homestead,
An invitation of
Freshly laundered linen,
Sweet oiled pine
And a baby soft blanket;
Cosseted by blossom
Laden blooms of
Gently beating hearts.
Windows zealously open,
Bringing in
The serene signature
Of the natural
Healing garden.

Whimsical Wisteria


image

Whimsical Wisteria
Frivolously drapes
Like capricious
Crinolines of
Citrine silk,
Curiously
Waiting
By a quaint
Cottage door
For the fortune
Teller to gaze
Into a crystal ball.

Pathway of dreams


image

Delightful, 
Pathway,
Secreted since olden days,
Tinglingly tempting,
A hauntingly beautiful
Flautist plays
Melodiously.
Deliriously drifting,
A leaf falls,
Poignantly;
A message
Scribbled into
Her delicate veins:
‘Wander, get lost, dream’
Appears.
Vibrations rise,
Shadows in dappled light
Suggest  symbols and
Signs of past and future
Lives.

Innocence


image

Frail,
Tiny,
Startlingly
Cheerful,
Simple Daisies
Like purest,
Translucent
Votive candles.
Serenading flames,
Flirt innocently
With eyes strained.
Tiny tears
Melt away
As the golden
Lights
Heal our hearts.

Stripes of summer colours


image

Stripes of summer,
Colourful,
Scintillating for
The soul.

Distant, dreamy
Unfurling eiderdown
Clouds.

Lie down
Under
The Cerulean summer
Sky
And sigh!

Simply seeds


image

Simple seeds,
Starlights
Adorning banks
And fields,
Guiding us
Along our path
Like celestial
Balls of
Concentric
Energy,
Spiralling
To infinity.
These stellar
Fertility angels
Serenely
Settle
In a new
Wilderness.

Fascinating meadow


image

The meadow’s buzzing,
Grasses jousting
Like a knights’ tournament,
Buttercups proudly
Shaking like fair
Maid’s bonnets,
Dandelion seeds
Dispersing in
Southerly
Breezes like
Sprinkles of fairy
Kisses.
Daisy charms
Adorn children
Whose footsteps
Tread, releasing
Sweet honey aromas,
Their giggles
Heard from dusk
Till dawn on
Midsummer eve.
Fawns leap
And elves weep
For joy as
The Fairy Queen
Is crowned in the
Toadstool ring.

Magical evening


image

As evening weaves
Her magic,
Soft, rippling
Waves,
Lulls signets and chicks
Into a web of
Nurturing dreams.

As serenity captures
The sun’s cooling rays,
Evening sighs
And closes
Her eyes.

Celebration of love


image

Ethereal mist
Flows through
The wrought iron
Aged bench
Whispering
Messages of love,
Weaving hope
Amongst heavenly
Herbs
And golden buttercups.
Years of enduring love
Creak sympathetically
With weathered wood,
Serenely surveying
The synergy of nature
Like the romantic celebration
Of eternal love.
