That lavender time again V

Permeating everywhere
heaven’s scent again
that ‘lavender time’ is here once more
bring on that sweet refrain

An afternoon spent bagging it
that heady fragrance there
as I breathe in its loveliness
a thing beyond compare

And what is totally sublime
is that throughout the year
I simply have to squeeze a bag
to rekindle summer cheer

[In July each year, one of my favourite pastimes is a day spent bagging the dried crop from my annual lavender harvest. Although I’ve been doing this for years, the last five (2016 through 2020) have been marked with a ‘That lavender time again’ poem, added to Jemverse on 23 July each year]

Tradition

3 of 5 in the Jemverse ’31’ series

It’s becoming a tradition
as this is the second year
February seventeen
and a walk to have a beer
We’re spoilt for choice in Sussex
with the hills to take us there
So here’s to many more years still
this special day to share

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

From 3 through 10 December, Jemverse has seven poems to celebrate Mother Nature’s hand – a different wonder every day. 

Easter Eggs

Easter Eggs and chocolate
waiting to be eaten
Brunch with bacon, scrambled eggs
admirably beaten

Easter Sunday mornings
Tradition setting here
All the family gathered
for fun times and good cheer

Treasure hunting later on
A wander by the sea
Then a veg out on the sofa
with a full roast for our tea
