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.

Salford 18th September

Poem borrowed from my page at Allpoetry.com

A tale a bit crafty, a bit religious, but all by me

Artwork created at Craft Sessions at Brain & Spinal Injury Charity in Salford.

As the Sun comes up,

its light shines through

the panels of coloured glass

angling the now coloured light

painting a picture,

of scenes on a floor

And as the sun shines,

through that brightly coloured window

reds cast with yellows

and greens cast with blues

as molten lead holds on tightly,

keeping the picture alive

She caught my view, in the Cretan sunshine

Casting a watchful eye over the fruits of the island

As our gazes met briefly, we smiled at one-another

Reacting to a momentary attraction

Long haired red head, with eyes of green

Enchanting young lady – with chance to meet at

The next mornings breakfast

Raspberry donuts – that’s what reminds me of you

A right zesty colour, bursting with notes of

Sharp pink and red – but unlike your strawberry cousin, notes of

Purple, which sing out in the pudding bowl

Best in a jam. in a pudding or ice cream, some will

Even eat it in a yogurt

Real connoisseurs eat you tween almond sponge and base in a

Right royal bakewell tart, but notes are played

Year on year when you’re served up on toast in jam

 

razzmatazz

Reactions to your

Appearance in gardens – are amazing – flying insects

Zipping around the garden for a chance to grab your

Zesty Nectar

Maybe its your fragrance and colour you relase

As they circle and glide around your petals

To get to that tasty nectar

Aiming sharp towards the target

Zoned towards the prize

Zipping into your flower head for their reward

Salford 10th April 2017

 

The tussle between the shades of red

began as they fought it out on the painters palette

ballet of an artistic nature

started at opposite ends of the rainbow

The bluer shade he stood his ground

as artists painted the flowers he’d found

but as pigment scarlet to pallet was fed

the cold shade turned a more warmer red

as red-violet flowers changed colours in bed

to a host of new flowers of violet red

Hiding away in bushes and hedgerows

little red berries await to be found

playing peek-a-boo under the greens

nothing much like their wimbledon cousins

their juicyness comes from being free in the wind

pleasant if you pick them at the perfect time

tasty enough without sugar and cream

sweetness coming direct from the sun

that peeps through their hiding place

In between the lavender stalks

and violets of purple and blue

pelargoniums – can be seen too

 

Dotted around the flowery sea

it’s easy for butterflies – or bees

to get to these flowers from the trees

 

patches of red – amongst blue and green

gardeners smile as they see the scene

beginnings of rainbows – best ever seen

 

whilst artists in studio capture in paint

a picture on canvas – in pencil drawn feint

red violets in yellow jugs – on a table that’s quaint

Over most of the globe, this

Right royal plant with its majesty of blooms

Can be found spreading colour indoors or outdoors alike

Happy in a pot indoors or outdoors

In the expanse of the garden, its

Delicate flowers bring a smile on special days
