Dreamy Daisies


image

Dreamy daisies,
Dippy, hippie,
Deliriously
Dancing.
Precocious
Petals,
Bodacious.
Proudly peeping
Through
The hay;
Enjoying
Energizing,
All day.

Weekly photo challenge: Horizon


image

Welcoming weekend
ramblers
Sauntering;
Sunny faces
Seeping fading
Sleepy rays,
Catching the
Final glimpse
of gliding
Swans
And
Sweeping
Gulls
Before
The horizon
Melts
Like a
Golden,
Caramelized
Butter sauce.

This poem and photo is my response to post a days photo challenge,’horizon’,  We thought the day was going to possibly be one of the final, sunny, warm days of the year: it was indeed and the whole world seemed to turn out to enjoy an afternoon stroll. The photo was taken by the river near Hertford, Hertfordshire.

Autumnal Memories


image

Red ruby reminders
Everywhere,
Musty fungi,
Munchy forage.
Prickles & pickles,
Russets & possets,
Jellies & relish,
Rambles & tangles.
Sanguine serenade.

Opulent orange berries


image

Opulent orange,
Candlelit
Tangerine
Globes.
Heart warming
Winter woes!
Glistening
Globules,
Singing icicles.
Thawed,
Rosy noses!

Sinister sloes


image

Sinister sloes
Slyly winking,
Night-sky berries,
Halloween merry!
Picked and pricked,
Steeped in liquor.
Fireside ‘wee dram’,
Shadows flicker,
Country tales,
Embers bicker;
Shimmer,
Smoldering,
Smelting:
Slumber beckons.

Happy Hydrangeas


image

Happy Hydrangeas,
Smiling at strangers,
Playful faces,
Abundant posies.
Prized petticoats,
Satin ribbons;
Tiptoes
Dancing,
Passers by
Laughing.

Beguiling begonias


image

Beguiling begonias
Flirtatiously flaunting
Flippy, floppy
Flowers;
Fruity,
Fizzy,
Cascading
Citrus sherbets;
Ambrosial
Juicy jewels,
Adorning,
Magnificent
Devas’ curls.
Autumn festival
Unfurls.

Unwinding


image

Unwinding
On the ‘downs’
Quietly cooling
Sun beams like a
Heavenly
Searchlight.
Breaking away,
Granulated greys
And
Lurking
Purples:
Peacefully
The sun sighs,
Melting,
Mesmerising.
The perfect
Ending to
A beautiful
Autumnal
Day.

Glorious fanfare


image

Languishing Morning Glory,
Glowing like
A pixie’s French horn,
Bathing
Ceremoniously
In morning rays;
Playing a fanfare
To golden
Days.
