Pink Carnation

A Pink Carnation (Image : Brian F Kirkham)

#CYW #Carnation-Pink

Popping up around the spring

its the kind of flower that likes a party

noted for its use as a buttonhole flower

keeping up appearances at family occasions

Curves more wiggly than your

average rose

rows upon rows keep each other standing up,

not falling over

at the nearest breath of wind.

they don’t look much, but once trimmed and located

in a gentleman’s suit buttonhole

on a family occasion, they

never fail to impress the guests

Mother’s Day

Salford 11th March 2018

it was Mothering Sunday today,

and I have had the annual dilemma on what to get my mum for her mother’s day pressie

in the end, I plumped for some flowers and chocolates

(mum was happy with them!)

Evoke

Evoke

Every memory can be triggered

Veils of happy tears and wonderful times at an

Occasion such as a cousins wedding

Kept safe in the head until

Engaged by a sight , sound or even a smell
