Pink III

I’m bold and I’m gorgeous
Bright in the sun
Pink, I am all about
life that’s begun
And I have no comparison
for tears or a smile
As you’ll not see such beauty
again for a while

Pink II

I lay as soft carpet
pink where I fall
Whilst above me all turns to green

My task it is over
as with beauty I fade
leaving growth wherever I’ve been

Pink

The breeze has blown
all the pink to the ground
from the blossom up there in the tree
Like a carpet it lies
with a hint of surprise
which is very appealing to me

So I whipped out my phone
on my way back to home
and took a few pictures to keep
For it’s lovely to see
and breathtaking to me
so much that it caused me to weep

Cherry blossom lovely

The cherry blossom’s in full bloom
on the allotment in the sun
as I sit here and write a while
now the strimming is all done
The grass grows quick this time of year
so I’m down here quite a bit
with spare batteries in my bag
in case the good ones quit

It’s quite cathartic working here
watching as things grow
but it’s nicer still just sitting
in the sunshine, as you know
So I’ll sit here with the blossom
beneath the deep blue sky
content to ponder for a while
as time slips slowly by

First Bluebells

Saw my first bluebells
in the sunshine today
Quite close to the river
down Old Shoreham way
All there in a cluster
with joy to regale
growing wild by the wayside
Beside the old trail

Jumping Patterdales

Walking on the riverbank
with a jumping Patterdale
On a sunday afternoon
with a waggy tail
He’s happy to be there
as are we this lovely day
The old Tollbridge behind us
for a wander and a play

Good conversation flowing
enjoying being here
in each other’s company
with plenty of good cheer
There’s lots to see around here
This place has that in spades
and the marvellous thing about it
is the magic never fades

Little Yellow

Little yellow dandelions
growing wildly there
And yes, I know that they are weeds
but I don’t really care

For anything that’s yellow
and grown by Nature’s hand
is good and I’m content with that
especially on my land

So they can keep on growing
yellow in the sun
as I’ll be sure to leave them
to be loved by everyone
