Moments in Time!
The fragility of a tiny – single daffodil – skirts the edging of our pathway,
New for the season and encouraging a smile – in the early morning sun!
Calling with promise to the forever faithful – wallowing in the gift of nature,
Leading the race for a small ensemble – breaking the surface for everyone!
The sky rides through – an electric blue – sparse are the clouds in slow adventure,
The chorus of songbirds – the Doves and Crows – they call you from the shade!
An invitation forth from a tentative doorstep – into the arms of the elements,
An unexpected vision – beyond the veil of shadows – a rare connection made!
Fleeting moments snatched – in a view through the window,
Maybe frosted for a touch of privacy – or while waiting for the kettle to boil!
Lost within a ponder-filled universe – sailing the fading seas of imagination,
A watching of the amorous brambles – forever creeping and reclaiming the soil!
Thrice an Owl it calls the dawning – as my tired eyes – they contemplate sleeping,
The sunrise waking beyond the curtain – welcoming a beautiful day!
A restful vision in its flow of tapestries – seeking out similes – the mind does meander.
In and out of dreamland and left to wander – fazing in the signposts that pave the way!
For granted steps – surrendering to hibernation – a pregnant pause a year in the making,
Trapped in the sidings and waiting for clearance – glimpses of nature that slip through the cracks!
Unconfident promises bandied in ignorance – offering a light at the end of the tunnel,
As matter of fact – and so slow to react – getting each man and his mission back on the tracks!
A Thrush comes into land while sounding the alarm – with another breaking morning,
The wind bends the trees and whistles through crevices – washed out by the rain!
Like drummer boys drumming or crazed players a strumming – the nature of melodies,
Moments in time – held like stars on the vine – captured and celebrated in a stagnating brain!
