Cluster

#Fowc #Cluster

Coming to life from beneath the ground

leaves hiding a burst of colour

until its time for the flowers to

say “Hello!” to the bright morning sky. keeping

together for their own protection

each individual flower adding their own bit of

radiant colour to the garden

Day/Night

#octpowrimo #Day #Night

Sunshine popped up from

Under the horizon – The beginning of a

New day

Snoozing flowers taking a stretch

Helping themselves to a bright spot

In a Moment, new shoots will

Negotiate their way through the soil

Elevating themselves to the clouds

Now when the sun has done his bit

Excitable little luna comes out to play

When its time for little un’s to go to bed

moonlight falling

over areas where the Neon and LEDs cannot

owls flying through the nightsky

navigation aided by the stars and moon

The luckiest guy alive

Title prompt : C/o John Cooper Clarke

Scattered the seed

under a spruce based siding

noting the date and time

someone must have been looking over me, –

hail mary moment – for

in the redness of the sky – came a flash of light

next thing you know, enough raindrops for the buried seed to drink

expectant seedlings popping up to say hello

Oulipo

Summer feast by KM Neumann – Original poem can be found at poetrysoup.com

Secret rendezvous in the wooden tremeloes

dripping with soft morning diadem

Motifs giving rise to mounting desire

Oaths seeding ligntning and naked cadent

pining for confessors of passion and pleasure

nautilus knows best how to refuse souffle

in bedlam with soft underpass and cantilever

Basic instinct – foundations for growth

an Octane of lower class, patient and kind

drizzle for sherpa, peculiar and shelves

Sump stove surfing a shortcut return

bead hydrant full of mandacity and reformation

Growth

#fowc #socs #growth

Getting up at sunlight

reacting to the suns warmth

out pop the little seedlings

who were sleeping away after

taking refreshment in the border – now, there

having a wail of a time – reaching for the sunshine

Pine Green

#CYW #Pinegreen

Perhaps you would say

Its probably the most recognisable tree

Next to the horse chestnut and

English Oak – Its seeds hanging from its evergreen branches

Growing commences when these seeds find their way under ground

Released into the air slowly and then

Enjoying the journey towards the clouds

Expect a squirrel to use it for a home while birds

Nest in the higher branches above them

Orchid

#cyw #orchid

Over time the orchid plant

Releases the colour hidden away in its stems

Crafting flowers of such beauty, you would have thought

Heaven’s angels had crafted each one

It takes time to grow an orchid with such colour and beauty, but its

Definately worth every second waited

Mountain Meadow

Mountain Meadow created by inky

Mountaineer came

out of his wintry cave, the summit conquered

up on the top of the hill, had been nothing but snow, but

now those seeds sleeping under the snow had

torn through the safety of the soil

and provided a lovely view for the climber to see

in time, he’d enjoy the fruits of his triumph, but for

now he was enjoying – his first sight of spring

Views from a Window

I

Facing Swathe’s of Green

Little fruits play hide and seek

under leafy shade

II

Tomatoes Blushing

Star of the evening platter

by the battered cod

III

Empty vines begin

growth of some brand new red fruits

new fruits taking shape

Jungle Grass

#Coloryourworld #CYW #junglegreen

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the garden

Up shoot the blades from that packet you bought from the DIY Store

Not like your regular grass – this lot grow an awful lot faster

Going up as high as a giraffe’s neck

Local’s wonder where you disappeared to

Encapsulated by grass as you sit on your garden chairs
