Cerise

Cherry red they call it – taken from the french

except there are times you can’t call it

red – not in the traditional sense

its more pink than that

shade stronger than your average strawberry (even in ice cream)

each shade seems different, but so then are cherries on the tree

Ode to the trees

#Octpowrimo #Huggingatree

They line the road, from bottom to top

watching the people and vehicles pass by

doing their work without a word

the birds rest on their branches as they’ll flop

to trees with lots of leaves they’ll fly

the shade cast on the greens of the grass around

enjoying the cool from the suns rays unheard

out of the sun – on the shadiest ground

Fern

Found in the darker parts of a garden

each little green leaf, enjoys the shade

reciprocating the deed for wildlife and toadstools alike

nature’s protection from a spring shower.

Horse Chestnut Tree

An Old piece of poetry from the Allpoetry.com profile….but new on here…enjoy

Sat there regally, in his park,
with brothers and sisters in an arc,
The Horse Chestnut tree spends his day
watching the children and adults at play.

He’ll be there, sitting, every week
as little children play hide and seek
and others shelter in the sun
while eating sandwiches or a bun

He shelters birds from passing rain,
and watches it flow down nearby drains
he protects those animals that don’t like to be pinned
by that autumnal passing wind

The Horse Chestnut Tree, is an amiable chap
and when all is quiet, he’ll take a nap
There’s only one thing – That drives him bonkers
when kids climb up him to pinch his conkers!
