It possesses a certain
something that soothes
and reminds me of summer
with its calming moods
Just a squeeze of the sachet
when winter is here
or a rub between fingers
when summer is near
brings out that pure fragrance
that, with purest intent
and a small play on words
is to me ‘heavenscent’

New lavender

New lavender in my garden
In the space beside the pond
It is fragrant and delicious
But delicate still in frond

I am hoping that this place
Will see it settle in its bed
So that in successive summers
It will seed itself and spread

New lavender in my garden
It is my solace when in need
So fragrant when it’s growing
But also when in seed
