Summer in mind

A patch of wild flowers growing
in the churchyard yesterday
Reminded me that summer
wasn’t all that far away
And yes, I know it’s over
by the chill that’s in the air
Felt now come the mornings
seen by coats worn everywhere

And yet these little wonders
caught on camera for a smile
Serve as a reminder that
the sun brings us meanwhile
Beauty never disappears
It’s always there to find
And though the warmth has left us now
it’s summer in my mind

Floral

Flowers in vases
Splashes of colour
Reminds us in winter
That sometimes it’s summer

Sumptuous

They inspire in me a wholesomeness
as a new day is begun
Summer flowers in full array
awakened by the sun

Their colour is quite sumptuous
intoxicating me
As I stand transfixed to take it in
momentarily

Tie-dye in the sunshine

Yesterday in the sunshine
On my day of birth I saw
Some flowers in the garden
Which deserve (at least) encore

Tie-dye in the sunshine
A halcyon memory there
Absolutely gorgeous
Which I’m happy here to share

Travel & flowers

It’s going to be a busy week
and I’ll be travelling a lot
So I’ll not mind so much
if the weather’s not as hot
London now it’s Monday
Southend on the morrow
Then Lincoln Thursday morning
returning Friday when I’ll borrow…

…a few of those long travelling hours
for a weekend with a rest
Before London comes around again
on Monday next no less
And to keep my sanity intact
I’ll be thinking of these flowers
as I traverse the length of England
over several long hours

Many happy returns

Back when it was purchased
with its buds not yet in bloom
I thought I’d save a picture
of it for the first of June
And now that day has come
and the summertime is here
I’m really pleased I waited
as its beauty is now clear

It’s name too has a purpose
and as the title above goes
We’re really looking forward
to more flowers from this rose

Resplendent

Full of life and joie de vivre
flowers in full bloom
So resplendent in their glory
that we have to give them room
And the wonder overflows here
full of the warm sunshine
that lets us know without a doubt
that it is summertime
