Gorgeous II

Rustic, these sculptures
turn their heads to the sky
be it grey or bright blue
with clouds floating by

In our garden their splendour
brings pleasure each day
Each unique and quite gorgeous
in their own special way

We’re so pleased that we found them
in the Lewes town store
and it’s not beyond reason
that we’ll go back for more

Bouncing

Wolfgang was bouncing
and after his ball
We caught him on camera
which was a good call
Sometimes he caught it
sometimes he missed
But we always praised him
and gave him a kiss
Cos doggos need praising
and knowing you’re happy
Quite easy to do with
so bouncy a chappie

In the garden with Chris

Sunday in the garden
with jazz and sun and beer
And family, conversation
pavlova and good cheer
Laughter on the Springtime air
from here this afternoon
We’ve been out since breakfast
and evening’s coming soon
But Chris Barber and his clarinet
still has a voice to hear
so we’ll all stay a little while
and have another beer

Freshly mown grass

Freshly mown grass
the fragrance sublime
right here in the garden
that is Sal’s and mine
It smells of the summer
the sunshine and more
that’s coming our way
with promise in store

So we shall be out here
and making the most
when not at the beach
on the Sussex coast
Our own private haven
for hours to pass
enjoying the smell of
freshly mown grass

Sunshine V

The warmth returned
and with it came
a thing with a forgotten name
It bathed most
everything it saw
with light and warmth and something more

Je ne sais quoi?
I cannot say
but it was lovely yesterday
So it’s my hope
it will decide
to stay a while and here reside

In the sun

Sat out in the garden
for the first time this year
Ate my lunch in the sun. It was warm.
Spent a short while
with that sun on my head
thinking this will soon be the norm

Thought, this is the life
and what it’s about
So pleased that the cold stuff is done
From now on apart
from the odd day it rains
I’ll be here outside in the sun

Spirea Arguta

As if I couldn’t tell, the Spring
was evident today
As with flowers white and delicate
Spirea had a say

Arguta genus, Meadowsweets
It’s always first to flower
for shade within my garden
from its small yet fragrant bower
