Waiting for the flowers

Poetry

Salford, 9th March 2019

A patch of earth on some barren land

Was turned over, fed and watered

Earth dug up in places on

Seeds or bulbs planted

Over the next few months, the process continued – and

Moments passed – until the arrival of a green leaf popping out of the ground

Expect rainbows of colour over the next few weeks.

Daffodils

This poem written by me, first appeared in the forward poetry title : New Beginnings.

I’ve given it a little polish and decided to share – enjoy.

Daffodils, Enchanted Garden, BASIC, Salford

 

Like their glass friends

The humble garden bulb

Has sat quietly

All Winter.

 

It’s waited for the signs,

The first melted ice

The dropping snow

or the returning birds

 

Prepared for the moment

that spring in the air

And that special time

The sun hits the ground

 

And as those first warm rays

Drop onto the ground

It pops up a shoot

And takes a look round

 

Then it drinks up the sun

and lets colour – explode!

Giving some beauty

to a home owners abode
