New Shoots

New shoots glitter in the sun
like rubies and emeralds.
In shades of amethyst and mother-of-pearl
shy flowers unfurl, the garden calls;
there’s work to be done.

    Garden work! I’ve got to get the inside sorted first! Lovely verse!

    I love the rhyme between ‘mother-of-pearl’ and ‘shy flowers unfurl.’ It was so unexpected and pretty!

      Thank you for visiting Emily and Jade, and for your kind comments. And Jules, I didn’t manage to get out into the garden either!
