In My Garden

Garden daffodils

Garden daffodils

A sudden profusion
of golden daffodils
greet the spring sunshine
in my garden.


Welcome Sign

On the roadside verge
a single clump of golden daffodils
looks towards the midday sun —
a welcome sign of things to come.

Holiday Haiku 9

Golden sun shines on
a field full of buttercups.
What a joyful sight.


Golden buttercups,
shining like miniature suns;
bright spots in my lawn.

Sycamore Tree – Septolet

Always first —
Sycamore tree
splashed russet
and golden.

South facing
sunburned leaves
welcome change.

Golden Carpet

A golden carpet;
leaves covering the green grass,
hiding it from view.


golden fairy chandeliers;
the laburnum keeps its promise.

This is a follow on from ‘Promise of Gold’ which you can read here.


Golden leaves clinging to the silver birches
like coins on a gypsy costume,
are always among the last to let go.

Long Shadows

In bright sunlight
long shadows are cast,
creating stripes of tarnishing
across the golden carpet of leaves
that covers the grass.
