Raspberry tassles


Raspberry tassles, tantalize;

Dainty clematis dazzle;

Muscari like mini pyramids of lapis lazuli brighten shady corners

Whilst amethyst anemones smile

Even when their petals are tattered by windswept twigs.

Spring wishes


spring wishesSpring flowers,

Winter showers,

Tingling cheeks,

Secretly wishing for

Warm weeks.

Over the last few days when I have been out walking, my cheeks have smarted from the bitter winds, reminding me that we are not far enough away yet from winter days. However, spotting the peeping of little Violets, Narcissi and primrose and the beautiful displays of hyacinths in village gardens, make me feel optimistic and wishing for warm days when one can feel the sun’s gentle energy.

Don’t forget the solar eclipse on Friday 20th March.

Caribbean Cavalcade
Caribbean cavalcade

Firework orange,
Exuberantly tangy
Swirling skirts.
Dangling, jangling
Luscious lime
Headresses;
Timely,
Shimmy and shake:
Elegantly fading
Into the midnight
Glade.

Love spring

Love spring

Spring explodes

Singing, zinging,
Loads of mingling,
Icecream pinks twinkling,
Dreamy violas’ winking.
