Mother Nature (6) – Rose

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

It’s day six and here we have the rose
the flower of England’s story
from House of Tudor’s history
to give heraldic glory

Majesty reflected here
matched with regal power
Magnificent and wonderful
tradition in a flower

Mother Nature (5) – Holly

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

Day five, eighth of December
and in nineteen ninety-three
Our youngest daughter born to us
and named (of course) Holly

So these berries, red of winter
bear her namesake with that glory
A Christmas baby always to
complete our family story

Mother Nature (4) – Rapeseed

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

Day four and back to yellow
and in May the fields of Rape
Amazing and spectacular
there on the landscape

That featured here on Bignor Hill
up on the South Downs Way
A field of wonder captured
on a sunny Sussex day

Mother Nature (3) – Bluebell

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

For day three it is the bluebell
another flower of Spring
which with new growth in April
many promises will bring

A little peel of little bells
A chime to mark the hour
that winter’s lost its hold on us
and summer has the power

Mother Nature (2) – Forsythia

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

Day two and it’s Forsythia
which gets a special mention
for ‘yellow’ has to feature here
and was always my intention

Vibrant colour in early Spring
when the year has just begun
Gives promise of the future
and long days of warming sun

Mother Nature (1) – Lavender

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

And today I start with lavender
my favourite by far
Its colour and its fragrance
to which I am particular

Epitomising summer
there’s a synergy right there
which, with sachets of its seed I can
throughout the seasons share

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
