Circle Tree

After the rain the
circle tree curled
its branches deep in the wood
Caught out attention as we passed
as to kindred spirits it should

And we paused and admired
and pondered and thought
and wondered at its design
Each giving a wink and a look that we knew
that this was ineffably fine

New Music again

No.5 of 6 in ‘The Music’ series from Jemverse

The quietness of the woodland brook
is always worth a second look

For with its trickle so it sings
and with it a new music brings

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

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

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

White

In white there’s essence of the new
January starts the year afresh
As we from hibernation
awaken from our winter rest

In white there’s hope and promise
Galanthus for a New Year’s day
Echoed in these few short lines
Capture all I have to say

In white there’s inspiration
Clarity gives birth to new
And so with hope we gather here
Repetition to eschew

The Bull

Went for a walk up on Mill Hill
and met some scary sheep
But although we had due warning
it was the bull that made us weep

For he was really jolly big
as nervously we trod
around him fairly gingerly
on Sussex chalkland sod

We hugged each other with relief
when on the other side
then shared the pic on Instagram
to spread the story wide
