Of the sun

Winter clung fast
to April’s last day
with rain and strong winds
to greet first of May

Yet there is still time
for the sunshine to come
with promise of summer
born of the sun

A little yellow…

A little yellow’s what I need
Springtime needs to be here now
Winter’s overstayed its welcome
time to leave and take a bow

Sunshine with its warmer feeling
needed more than I can say
Come as precursor to summer
Welcome now and with us stay

Berries Red

These berries red, they are so bright
and vibrant in the sun
Resplendent in their colour
now December has begun
They grow here in the same place
that I see them every year
And never fail, I’ll have you know
to bring a sense of cheer

And yes, it’s cold and winter’s my
least favourite of the seasons
But beauty like these berries red
exemplify the reasons
Why winter has its benefits
with wonders to behold
Even though I am not partial
to its all-pervading cold

December blossom

There’s blossom in the bushes
even though it’s now December
And I know it’s been quite warm of late
but you’d think it would remember
That winter sun although still bright
deceives with days of chill
and Spring is several months away
with quite some waiting still
Don’t get me wrong though, I’m quite pleased
to see these buds of pink
I’m just surprised and know the chill
will stop their growth I think

Twelve months twelve

No.5 of 12 in the Jemverse ‘Twelve months’ series

Vibrant red
my colour bright
Poinsettia
a lovely sight
December perfect
grown indoors
deservedly
gets good applauds
For I am Christmas
in a plant
Poignant
and significant

Golden

It had the power with beauty
to make you stop and stare
and simply marvel at it
or take a picture there
Golden, proud and splendid
not a one passed by
Everybody slowing and
breathing a deep sigh
For here was autumn’s glory
available and free
presented here with wonder
in this lovely London tree

Flowering Sage

Whilst most now it’s November
has died and gone away
Flowering sage remains and
brightens up this Saturday
The allotment turned for winter
just some brussel sprouts remain
That, and the flowering sage
until the springtime comes again
