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.

Prelude to Clematis


image

Precious Clematis
Precocious,
Purple
Veiled vines
Like shot silk
Tiered skirts,
Swaying and
Swinging round
On the ballroom floor,
Kaleidoscopic chinks
Cascading from
Crystal chandeliers.

A-Z Writing challenge letter J Journeying

Journeying along
The river of time,
Expectation, resolve.
Under many bridges
With forgotten names,
Through locks where
Community spirit has
Inspired you.
Enjoy sensuality of nature.
Today, a three mile journey
Might take three hours, but
Each hour will be experienced
To the full.
Time is precious.
Your journey is precious.
