Hidden

Hidden

parkart2

In the green of the park

Never miss a moment

Vast numbers of creatures live

In every nook and cranny across the field of grass

Some, sleep in the wood – whilst others live

In the ground, pushing up the grass you play on

Birds nest hide away – but you have to

Look closely after grabbing their food they hide

Enjoy your game of Hide and seek – with such luck – you might get a peek!

Guarding the green grass of the garden

A way in (or way out) for visitors – path leading

Towards the front door

Expect a little squeak from time to time – hinges need greasing

Colours Garden Nature Seasons Spring Winter

It is easy being green!

It IS Easy Being Green!

Green

Its quite easy being green

Watching the plants wake from the cold of winter

sprouting new shoots from barren branches

Calamatous cold conditions

giving way to glorious growth

watching wiry stems produce perfect petals

Evergreens look on proudly

as new growth comes from fallen seed

proud parent watching little seedlings

Rainbows of colour

pop through the carpet of lush greenery

from red through to violet – dotted round the borders

Pine Green

Perhaps its no mistake

In noting you’re an evergreen

Numbers of you gather on

Each side of the forest road, pushing through the

 

Grasses as you do,

Reaching high up into the sky of blue

Every squirrel in the neighbourhood covets your seeds, and

Each eager young kid, takes one your cones home

Noting – when your seed opens and closes

Green.jpg

A signal to all in the garden – Spring is a go.

formed from the primaries of blue skies and yellow sun

you’re what give the leaves and grass a colour

 

grazing cows and flocking birds

cheer the sight of your appearance

as flowers use your colour as canvas

 

and as people picnic on the public lawn

frogs and toads from ponds are born

hopping happy on lily pads

 

Precious stones shine your shade

and so do wines that make the grade

bottles show your wonderous class – in glass

 

artists capture your shades – dark and light

creating scenes of landscapes bright

canvasses everywhere have seen – your colour – green

Screamin’ Green

#coloryourworld #cyw #screamingreen

Some say, you’re a loud color

Causing a bit of a stir when you’ve been seen

Round the flowers you get more attention

Even more than the reds – to them it’s obscene

As your noisy colour spreads through the garden

Many cover their eyes at the sight

Its like Halloween twenty four – seven, particularly at

Night – time, the stars and moon don’t know what to think –

Glowing as you do on the front lawn

Dandelion

#coloryourworld #cyw #Dandelion

dandelion

King 👑 of the wildflower beasts

in the centre of the lawn you survey your kingdom

blades of grass bow to your yellow mane

as your family sets root across the square of green

one day, it will be time to pass your crown 👑 to another

but until then enjoy your moment in the sun ☀️

providing shade for the beetles.

Underground

mole

What’s that sound

That’s not above ground ?

Under your feet

and way down the street

below the grassy mound

somethings digging around

making its way

from point a to point b

wild creature moving

off home for some tea

and on way it moves soil

pushing grasses above head

making lawns lush

before heading for bed

Local

 

Local

Location : Ordsall Park, Salford, UK

Call it a Green Island in a Sea of Concrete

A good place for a football game

Trees of varying type scatter this wonderous island of Green

swings and climbing frames keep youngsters amused

whilst older kids send footballs into the northern air

as the local wildlife watches on in amusement

around each tree – signs of life

oak

fallen treasures from the Conker Tree and Hazel

Furry sweet chestnuts piled by the tree

(Look out for the Wildlife!)

as juggernauts pass on the nearby road

Four seasons contained on this glorious green

Taking in the sun by a tree in spring and summer

Colours of leaves constantly changing.

Winds of autumn swirling whilst bowlers are playing

Lets release our Kite – and watch its colours fly.

Drop

In response to the daily post prompt
Drop

Delightful little uniform shapes

Round one minute, tear shaped the next – landing

On rooftiles and gardens in a street near you.

Pavements creating pools in their cracks

 

Daily occurrence in spring and in autumn

Rivers rely on their contribution – to keep the fish happy

On warmer days, they stay in the clouds

Propelling to the ground, when it’s time to cool off

 

Do you know ? they’re quite artistic

Rainbows form when they fall in front of the sun

On fields they make the green grass grow

Perfect food for a strawberry patch

 

Dainty little flowers await the

Raindrops to quench their thirst

Over time they amass in great reservoirs

Providing water for all of us to drink
