FASHION MATTERS by Linda Dobinson at



written by: Linda Dobinson



The fashionable leaves
have chosen green this year,
an acid bright that catches the light.
From a distance
they make a painterly splash
against the spring sky.
But look closely and you see
up and down the cat walk branches
they pose, each one vying
to be a super leaf.
The fashionable flowers, however,
cannot agree so consequently
they decided to experiment
with Nature’s exquisite palate.
Then each one will choose
the colour it feels will suit it best.
The fashionable grass also
is being tardy this year.
Undecided if to go long or short.
Short is chic,
but long feels lovely
blowing in the breeze.
