July

11 of 12 in the Jemverse series ’12 months II’

In seventy-nine
Forty Julys back
two kindred spirits wed
A fledgling love
grown stronger since
and deeper it’s been said

So this series
now at eleven
to my soulmate here I give
These simple words
true from my heart
for the life we share and live

Twelve months seven

No. 12 of 12 in the Jemverse “Twelve months” series

Delphinium Larkspur
climbs to the sky
in the bright sun
on the first of July

The seventh birth flower
its colour just glows
hiding the secret
that only it knows

Suffice here to say
that its beauty transcends
this series of twelve
which is now at its end
