All Colour

I am all things colour
I look for a smile
Especially when
they’re not seen for a while
But it’s easier when
the sunshine comes out
and there’s things like
Spring and Summer about

Jimi

And here’s me listening
with nigh on fifty years passed
New sound from Jimi’s sweet guitar
still giving me a blast

“Both sides of the Sky” – a new release
in twenty eighteen
Music still gives me goosebumps
however it may seem

Sweet listening pleasure, simple things
I’m in my element here
Star-spangles live on through the years
for those who have an ear

“Both sides of the sky”  was released on March 9, 2018 and is the third release in a trilogy of posthumously released “archival recordings” from Jimi Hendrix who passed away in September 1970. The trilogy also includes ‘Valleys of Neptune” (2010) and “People, Hell and Angels” (2013).

Pastel Pink

Pastel pink and gorgeous
Marshmallow-like the blossom swells
on over-laden tree boughs lovely
As every April springtime tells

And there is nought to touch this
rather splendid time of year
This blossom outpouring wonder
there to bring us cheer

Magical

Magical this influence
of Mother Nature’s hand
blessed with a dose of sunshine
all across the land

Springtime knows no boundaries
her hand is everywhere
painting all with colour
for everyone to share

Vibrancy shouting

It was vibrancy shouting
my name out loud
as I welcomed the sunshine
from behind winter cloud

And the stage show of colour
I had waited long for
sang loud with theatre
for raptured encore

I’m an audience captive
so play for me here
as a prelude to summer
for laughter and cheer

Pink and gorgeous

It was there in mid April
delivered with grace
Pink and quite gorgeous
and right in my face

Blossom to tell me
that Spring really was
here now the winter
had ended because
the sun had had
enough of all this
and needed to show us
a little of bliss

Bliss that with blossom
so lovely and pink
gives pause just to wonder
and ponder and think
that now we can all
look forward to sun
and warm days of summer
for laughter and fun

Spring (finally)

And finally Spring
arrives in a day
long hours of sunshine
hip hip hooray
On the breeze is a fragrance
carried with grace
as we welcome the Springtime
with warm embrace

Yellow is…

Yellow comes and yellow goes
but with consistency it shows
that yellow carries summer days
the brightest sun, the mellow haze
So it finds favour just because
yellow is and yellow does

Fever Dreams colour

When sleep falters
in fever drams
I think of colour
and immerse myself
in a bright palette
Repainting the night
to a smile of contentment

Canvas

So here is a canvas
and here are my words
crafted with pen
I paint pictures of life
