Faded flame


Faded flame
Darts like a
Ragged mane.

Somnolent summer


image

Solitary,
Seasoned,
Stone maiden,
Somnolently
Comfortable
In a verdant
Summer blanket.
A cavalcade of
Summer blooms,
Billowing,
Cheerfully chatting.
Chivalrous Corn-flowers,
Aquilegia flaunting
Fashionable,
Faded pink bonnets.

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.

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.
