Clarity III

And the light this morning
emulates a clarity anew
Captured on the coast road
as I pass with clear sea view
Pastel pinks and subtle blue
Oranges and yellow
confirming absolutely that
I am a lucky fellow

Mother Nature (4) – Rapeseed

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

Day four and back to yellow
and in May the fields of Rape
Amazing and spectacular
there on the landscape

That featured here on Bignor Hill
up on the South Downs Way
A field of wonder captured
on a sunny Sussex day

Mother Nature (2) – Forsythia

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

Day two and it’s Forsythia
which gets a special mention
for ‘yellow’ has to feature here
and was always my intention

Vibrant colour in early Spring
when the year has just begun
Gives promise of the future
and long days of warming sun

Mother Nature’s Gifting

With yellow sky, the sunset
was something to behold
A panoramic spectacle
tinged with flecks of gold

Late October wonder
above the river there
Provided a rare moment
to simply stop and stare

For here was special beauty
unequivocal and free
Mother Nature’s gifting
through her generosity

Yellow Moggy

I spied a yellow moggy
in the sunshine yesterday
Parked outside Emmaus
Looking pretty good I’d say

Born in nineteen seventy-one
She’s forty-six years old
which for a car is something
with a colour quite so bold

And this was her original
as the dashboard does attest
Vibrant here and lovely
still looking at her best

‘Emmaus’ is a UK based charity working together to end homelessness. The first community was founded in France in 1949 by Father Henri-Antoine Groues (better known as ‘Abbe Pierre’). The Morris Minor featured in the poem (and pic) became affectionately known by the nickname ‘Moggy’. This one has a ‘K’ registration plate from 1971

The Yellow

Underneath the canopy
the yellow on the ground
the changing of the seasons
as autumn comes around
The beauty at this time of year
takes my breath away
enraptured by the wonder
on this fine October day

The Zest

Resplendent the yellow
the daisy-like smiles
Their zest keeps me going
for miles and miles
Like a tonic for life
from fair nature’s hand
on the path that’s before me
across this great land

And wherever I go
the zest I will see
be it there in a flower
or a shrub or a tree
The essence of life
so perfectly free
is there for the taking
and all around me
