Laburnum

Laburnum
pods hang
in beige clusters.
Drab mockery of springtime
glory.

Draining

Hot,
the sun
on my skin,
draining all my energy.
Lethargic.

Whispering

Pumping
pedals turn
quietly whispering wheels,
bright lycra flashes past.
Cyclists.

Returning

A few days away
and cherry blossom gone,
but look — cherries form.

Returning
I refill
the bird feeders.
Rare visitor flies in.
Jackdaw.

Delicate Beauty

Magnolia Blossom

 

Magnificent
delicate beauty
yet so bold,
palest pink, purple tinged.
Magnolia.

Unbowed

Blue
grape hyacinths
joyfully point skywards,
unbowed by the constant
rain.

Easter

Easter
arrives early
this year, yet
Winter’s grip does not
relent.

Crocus Blooms

Few
crocus blooms —
crushed by harsh
weather. More to come;
snow!

Jenny Wren

Shy
little brown
bird, hopping, creeping
around the rockery, Jenny
Wren.

Back Again

Pheasant,
two weeks
gone, no news.
Back again now seeking
food.
