Diamonds II

Nature’s hand came calling
in our garden yesterday
Left little diamond clusters
for us as if to say
This was its way of saying
that there’s beauty everywhere
and if we just look around us
we will find it waiting there

Our bit of land

Went to the allotment
it was quite overgrown
and not too much sign
of the things we had sewn

But after a while
spurred on by the weather
it was looking quite peachy
as we worked together

Enough rhubarb there
for a crumble or three
and the last of the lavender
just waiting for me

A butternut squash
in the weeds there we found
yellow and gorgeous
and close to the ground

And a few summer berries
from the shrubs on the side
Raspberries and blackcurrants
to give us some pride

And yes there’s more grass
than growing plots here
but it is our allotment
and throughout each year

We’ll play and discover
new things from the land
which we have there planted
by our own loving hand

Tri-haiku XX (Circular Green)

This circular green
Grown, cut back, abundant now
as summer takes hold

This circular green
A comfort true and fragrant
These summer senses

This circular green
With me, part of me, in me
I am in summer

Two lavenders

Bought two big lavenders in pots
two years or so ago
and whereas one has grown abundant
the other one’s been slow
Having said that, the one I planted
is the one that’s done the best
So there’s a lesson here I think
to learn and in that time invest

So now I have transplanted
the one that was pot bound
to join the other in the sunshine
planted firmly in the ground
And I guess that I am hoping
it will do the same for me
and next year come out in flowers
like the other, brilliantly

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
