My Flower Song

When the tepid winds of Spring arrive,
I am seeking out nature’s colours,
Voraciously looking towards the ground
for a spark of growth, some hope of beauty,

When the Sun beats a little longer,
They arrive, like a Carnival coming to town,
Down my garden beds, blowing their trumpets of shapes and colours,
First the crocus, hyacinth and tulips,
Peonies, muguet, lilacs and Irises
The Symphony crescendos as the weather turns humid

When fair June, the beginning of Summer arrives,
bluebells, daylillies, foxgloves do chime,
and patterns and stamens and accents galore,
all march to a hot beat and knock on my door.

And when the rains and heat of August in chorus,
awaken the earth to petrichor delights,
Each mid-afternoon, the roses unfold their petals,
and sit like Queens next to Kings of delphiniums and Princes of rising honeysuckle,

When September beckons one and all,
to pack up their suitcases and return to the dust,
The Chrysanthemums are a stalwart army of defiance,
and stare down the remains of transient petals

October siren’s it’s Orange call,
to change all the trees, from green Summer to Fall,
and like a magician’s pointer it strikes,
and all the leaves turn to fiery cauldrons,
which seep into valleys and gardens and forests
One last hurrah, and then no more chorus

Winter blows her White Witch song,
The glory of colour, now all gone,
The greyness and slush mix their icy toll,
and my camera must wait for nature to extol
it’s wonderment again, but the frigid months are far too long

I am always waiting, for my flower song
