Buttercups whisper yellow
as rows of smiling roses awake,
to witness first spears of saffron.
Withering foliage sails
to crumble on sponged grass,
as sepia breezes scatter ancient duffs…
to a graveyard of ochre ribbons.
Rubied roses, beacons of light…
Petals fall, a scarlet river runs,
seeping aromas of fresh peach
as plum-crayoned Poppies shade Violas,
who pout with delight.
Crepe tipped buds ready to crash…
Tangerine Tiger Lilies,
their ginger will flare.
Daisies grin when glancing
at graceful arrays.
A moon slumbers
where rainbows melt golden ashes.
Chorales of songbirds’ cradle
in dreamy shadows of a new dawn,
as past whispers pursue perfumed Wisteria
whilst dancing a Marigold maypole.
Ruffled clouds spill silver raindrops
Over breath of summoned ghosts.
They shiver naked in no-man’s land
compelling winds to wheeze…
As scents of honey hover
Bell flowers illuminate
blooms of harmonic trumpets.
