Radiant Wild Roses

Radiant wild roses,


Reminiscent of

Fairy summer balls

Where lemon scented garlands

Twist and twirl,

Adoringly adorning

Dewy curves.


Soothed by the great ancient Oak

Soothing great ancient Oak
The Great Oak’s
Soothes the
Tearful sap
Moves along
A wrinkling
Life’s map.
Dryads hearing about
The endearing team,
Draw the lovers
To the healing scene;
Tying them forever,
Settling the great tree.

Soulful Roses

_104 _106 _110Soulful roses,

Lover’s tipsy posies

They sip dewy petal potions

As their rouched lips


A tryst…






My son gets married on Saturday, so as you can imagine I’ll be very busy over the next couple of days! So I’ve taken a quiet moment, while my dogs lie asleep to reflect on a few beautiful moments of spring. My son is getting married to a lovely Scottish girl in Edinburgh. The celebration is to be held at a Scottish country home and estate, so I hope to be capturing the essence of that beautiful day and location and share it with you next week.

First blustery blossom


First blustery

First blossom,
Blustery mornings
Like freshly
Laundered linen.
Fairy bride’s millinery,
Glowing with
Knowing fragility
Sewing silver
Bethrothed heads,
Of March,
They be wed.

Ese’s weekly shoot quote challenge:Memories


‘ Memories are the key not to the past
but the future.’
Corrie Ten Bown

Time to wander,
Pondering whilst
Sauntering on
Wet sand
Like a caramel
Fudge land.
Salty lips,
Chalky skin,
A deep,
Warm mineral
Breath in:
Letting go.
Waves fade
Negative thoughts
Wash away.
Sea lavender breeze,
Flotsam of old trees.
Memories like
Sea glass pebbles
And sea shell patterns
In the sand.

Ese’s challenge ‘memories’ gave me the idea to return to the memory of the walk with my husband and dogs on the Norfolk sands one carefree day when we were on holiday and had time to saunter and breathe in the minerals and taste the seaside. It was a precious memory, where we got lost in our own thoughts, reminisced and had fun with our dogs. The light was wonderful, so relaxing.

Rare Beauty


Rare beauty,
Radiantly proud;
Her swollen
Serenely shining,
Gently smiling;
Streaming through
Bedroom windows,
Night gazers
Stare, euphoric,
Drenched in
Lunar energy.
An innocent
On the angel’s face,
Reflects elation
On the maternal moon.
Rocketing high,
The angel reaches
Touching incandescent
Sparkling light.

My artwork, ‘Reiki angel’ was inspired by a reiki meditation, where I saw her standing in front of me, reaching for the moon. After a few nights of meditating by the light of the blue moon and just gazing, I felt I had to write a poem. I hope you enjoy it.

About the Blue Moon
An astrological Blue Moon is rare; it happens when the moon is full twice in a solar month, giving us two full moons in the same zodiac sign.  The second of those is the Blue Moon.  The next Blue moon will be in June 2016.
Sarah Varcus says ‘ This moon seeks to empower us to make positive changes in our lives’

Rhapsody in ruby pink


A rose,
Elegant as
Oriental silk,
A Rhapsody in Ruby
Connotes a
Sultry summer evening.

On the parterre,
A diva dances
To a phantasmagorical
Duet, divinely
Embracing each
Others melodies.

A tingling of enrapturing
Ruby pink pollen,
Like dew drops
Drenching the soul,
The diva’s dulcet
Tones seek solace.

A whirlwind of petals
Scatter love letters,
Breathless, the deva
Draws a petal.
Enraptured by
Ambrosial perfume,
She leaves
The soiree
To seek her beau.

Radiant red poppy


Radiant red poppy,
So strikingly solitary,
A subdued song of sighs,
Streaming from
Her heavy heart.

Passionate petals,
Velvety veins
Like the wings
Of the great Red Admiral
Boldly soaring
On the summer breeze
To eternity.
