Virtuous Verbena


image

Vivacious,
Elegantly elfin like
Sugar pink posies,
Fancy for fairy
Princesses palaces.
Fragrant, finespun,
Flavour of marzipan;
Magnificent minutiae
Of nature’s manuscript.

Feast of Rhododendrons


image

Swards of vintage, pink chintz
Like grandiose gondolas,
Gliding along the venetian
Grand canal.
Precious purples,
Jewels of the Nile,
Proudly posing on
Feluccas reaching with
Swollen sails.
Crepe de chine greens
Scattered with eau
De nil seeds,
A grand tour
Of sensual scents
Of summertime,
A feast of magnificent
Colour.

Striking starlets


image

Strikingly strident
Starlets,
Bursting
Amongst
Gracious greens.
Punctiliously pink
Like a sanguine
Society woman,
Parading¬† in ‘Prada’
On Derby day.

Flirtatious Salsa


image

Flourishing,  flirtatiously
Sensuous,
Salsa dancers,
Delightfully, flick
Fuchsia curls,
Swirling taffeta skirts.

The tactile troupe,
Fruits of the dance festival,
Feeding arduous audiences.
