Buttercup meadow


image

Boho buttercups,
Carpeting
Meadows
And bordering
Fields,
Calling honey bees
To feast on
Sweet sherbet pollen.
Buttercups are
Amber from heaven!
And nature’s bling.
Always cheerful!
Butterflies peel
As they zig zag
With zeal,
Damselflies
Dance,
Searching
For a meal.

Nature’s picnic


image

Ladies lace
Languishly spinning,
Dainty cotton patterns,
Crafted by
Nimble, fragile fingers.
They’re stitching a story
About chivalrous
Gentlemen
Wearing woven cloaks;
An eager entourage,
Pursuing the path
To rescue
Swooning sisters
From sun-drenched fields.
Gaily gathered, relaxing,
Picnic baskets laden,
Blankets strewn with
Well worn,
Beautifully bound,
Copies of
Austen and Bronte,
Finely fluted finger
Pastries
And Wild, ripe
Strawberries.
As Midsummer eve
Draws in
The picnic party,
Pepper their petticotes,
And comb their hair.
Entangled with
Charming gentlemen,
They leave the
Ladies lace
To nature’s picnic,
Bunnies, blue-tits
And accumulating
butterflies.
