Pink IV

A little sprig of pink
in the winter brown today
captured my attention
as I passed upon my way
So I whipped my iPhone out
and took a picture on the spot
as it seemed the thing to do
and I thought ‘why ever not’

It’s nice to see such things
as they bring a smile and more
something to be glad about
and raise a loud encore
For as the seasons gather
their skirts and have a fling
the result around this time of year
is the joy we call the Spring

A toast to Springtime

Springtime’s definitely on it’s way
as in the pot out front
two daffodils are glowing
as from the earth they shunt

‘Glowing’ here and ‘growing’
the choice of word is right
as after winter’s iron chill
they are a welcome sight

And as each day gets brighter
and the sunshine grows in strength
their warmth will be reflected
in daylight’s increased length

A cause for celebration
I feel no one would decry
so here’s a toast to Springtime
as the winter passes by

No snow Sussex

In Yorkshire it was snowing
I heard online today
whereas down south in Sussex
it was simply dull and grey
In fact I can’t remember
the last time snow I saw
must have been some years ago
before a winter’s thaw

Hardly that surprising though
as here in warmer climes
coupled with the salty air
bodes ill for snowy times
Yet part of me was jealous
just a little for some snow
as it really is quite beautiful
when winter’s in full flow

New tree

Obi found a little tree
over by the fence
and as it had gone unnoticed
we all paid recompense
Obi ran around a bit
as we thought how nice it was
to plant a new tree in this place
for sustenance because
it really is a lovely field
so what could be a better way
to celebrate it being here
than this new tree today

Oranges

Vibrant these oranges
capture the light
looking lovely for photos
and my appetite
But for this still life
I have to confess
that the picture you see
is one orange less

As just out of shot
on the side to left field
the evidence lay
with fresh orange peel
Irresistible they
for both camera and eating
so this picture you see
will be short, sweet and fleeting

For bliss

Ice cold here yet beautiful
Jack’s frosted strands they cling
with brittle fronds of loveliness
to cover everything
Too cold to stand here very long
yet there is time for this
rare spectacle of wonder
at this time of year for bliss

Over Brighton Tonight

A sky atmospheric
over Brighton tonight
met us on the beach
reflecting the light

Spectacular was
the view there that we
had to pause for a while
by the night-blackened sea

To take stock of it all
and to apply a measure
by which we could capture
this wonderful treasure

Three acre field

December in Three acre field
so it’s wellies every time
as mostly it is raining though
sometimes it’s also fine

It’s colder now as well of course
but Obi doesn’t mind
as he still has his run about
and has a lovely time

And we still have a wander round
breathing in the air
and just like him enjoy the fact
of simply being there

Ballistic Nasturtiums

The nasturtiums’ gone ballistic
even though the summer’s gone
as it’s reaching now to skyward
and its stems are very long
It’s spreading ‘cross the garden
showing no sign of demise
which with its splash of colour
at this time of year is wise

The nasturtiums’ gone ballistic
but I fear come the first frost
it might then come a cropper
and begin to count the cost
But until then we are happy
with its vibrancy right here
as every day it brings us joy
rekindling summers’ cheer

Julie’s plate

Julie’s plate makes for a picture
with oranges waiting there
in the middle of our table
for a feast we’ve yet to share
and as the light was perfect
and the depth of field just right
I thought I’d take a picture
as they made a lovely sight
