Dazzling dahlias

Autumnal showers
Drench;
Dazzling dahlias fence,
Flouncing their fripperies.

Weekly photo challenge: Nostalgia: Memory cottage


photo challenge, ‘nostalgic’image

Granny’s gate
Always open.
Skipping along
The cobbled path,
Brushing by
Candyfloss flowers
And lollypop lupins.
Icing sugar windows
Glisten.

West wind blows
Memories through
The front door;
Wibbly wobbly
Licorice beams
And painted furniture
For the three bears.
Rippling rose syrup
Ice cream topped
With sugar violets,
Savoured whilst
Wooed with
Tales of olden days
And recipes of
Dripping pink
Iced buns and
Drizzling
Lemon cake.

Whispers of
Garden Fairies
Painting dainty
Dust on playful
Plump plums,
Blushing berries
And sparkling
Strawberries.

Glowing gran
Kisses goodbye,
The vignette fades
To a hazy
Kaleidoscopic
Dream.

Nostalgia brings
Tears of joy,
Weeps away fears
And deeply
Heals.

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.

Magical evening


image

As evening weaves
Her magic,
Soft, rippling
Waves,
Lulls signets and chicks
Into a web of
Nurturing dreams.

As serenity captures
The sun’s cooling rays,
Evening sighs
And closes
Her eyes.
