Of Writers and Readers III

Part 3 of 3

Cathartic the writing
Long have I written
For with poetic voice
I am truly smitten
I write with a passion
as I want you to see
The zest of the life
I have around me

Tri-yellow

Halcyon feel of yellow
my colour every time
Happiness exuded
for my soul to shine

Yellow irresistible
the colour of the sun
with zest that has no equal
enlightening everyone

Epitome of yellow
found ‘most everywhere
Captured and then treasured
a memory to share

I’m everything

I’m dancing. I’m rhythm
I’m words on a page
I’m pen and I’m words
from a poet and sage

I’m flowing and form
I’m stanza and verse
I’m meaning and substance
from design and yes, terse

I’m everything pleasure
I’m zest and I’m joy
I’m not holding back
from affection or coy

I’m abundance and spirit
I’m the words that you read
I’m a song that needs singing
from a longing and need

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

Substance & Zest

It’s lovely to feel
the warmth of the sun
at the start of a day
which has barely begun
It bodes well with promise
of good things to come
when the sun stays there
’til the day is all done
It’s a sustaining tonic
to lift and uphold
Bright, warm and lovely
an orb of pure gold

And at the start of the summer
when I awaken and live
I know that its strength
has much more to give
The power of the sunshine
at its very best
keeps me happy and hopeful
with substance and zest

Joie de vivre

Lethargy keeps on creeping in
I think it is the time of year
As we’ve had too much of winter
and although the spring is near
The cold won’t seem to leave us
and though we do have days of sun
they’re not at present warm enough
to give a sense of fun

We’ve had the trudge of winter now
for months and months it seems
But it’s getting really boring
so we need that stuff of dreams
Bring back to us that spring of step
that joie de vivre and zest
and the long warm days of sunshine
which will find us at our best

Transformation

The transformation of a garden
seldom used in winter time
Enhanced by nature’s colour splash
is a wonder when it’s fine
Little flowers are springing up
with myriad colours there
unequalled in their brilliance
to bring joy and zest and flair

The vibrant carpet of the lawn
with grass so lush and tall
Rises to our firm applauds
and nature’s curtain call
For it must now bow before this
and the warmer months to come
for the pleasure it will bring us
Beneath the summer sun
