Under a silk-bodied moon
Honey scented Alyssums appear as ghosts
Spidered over rockeries.
Amongst Magnolia’s pink flags,
Birds chatter like nosey-Parkers.
Witch-Hazel’s scarlet feathered blooms
Shadow mauve Sweet Peas,
Their bridal dresses flicker
Like sparks of amethyst
As Heather rests her prickly head
on a pillowed daisy.
Bullfrog hides between threads of webs,
Bathed in Cuckoo spit. He ruffles,
He shuffles from slumber,
Whips his tongue, slashing thin air.
Lady Frogs green gowns flare,
To vibrating voices, awaiting worldly wonders
Of rampant males.
Vapour perspires from comfy cushions,
Swallowing the atmosphere,
Forming silver bands,
Dispersing cream firework fountains.
A Dog-Rose expels vanilla essence,
Offered to bustling Bees.
An Orchid, Ruby lips dazzle
in dappled light,
soaring scents to the heavens.
The citron ball blares
Through a sanctuary of treasure.
A lanky stalked lemon Lupin
Stretches his spine with respect.
Wisteria’s crumpled trumpets fall,
Their purplish juice drains.
Weeds, unwanted weeds sigh helplessly,
Scream when uprooted, unearthed.
Withering matchstick men
Host-home to crazy crawlers,
Weeping to the sound of sorry Crickets.
