Proud Periwinkles

Minute Periwinkles
Mooting to celebrate
Spring is here!

Toot! Toot!
Wood nymphs’whistles
Twinkling and tinkling,
Sweetly serenading
Fairy friends.

Heartwood forest near the village of Sandridge and the city of St.Albans is a truly magical place, it is a newly emerging woodland, owned and managed by the Woodland trust,it is England’s largest native woodland. The forest is surrounded by ancient woodlands where we saw woodpeckers and a couple of week’s ago beautiful Bluebells. Sometimes the tiny Periwinkle can be forgotten or trodden on. The language of flowers suggests that Periwinkles represent an early friendship.

Diva Dahlia,
Winter white
Snowflake,
Close,
Poised,
Piroetting ice
Fairy’s toes:
Leaving a trail
Of gold.

Glorious fanfare

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