Springtime Renewal

by Colly

Tiny, Minuscule flowers –

a pale blue with centered, yellow hue.

Blithe – meander through garden’s bloom.

Iron flowers and smiles

by Jem Croucher

Took some night-time pictures
‘cos the days are oh so short
of the iron flowers out here
in my garden for a thought

For they are really gorgeous
as I think you will agree
and always bring a smile
to us when daily them we see

What She Loved…

by A. L. O'Prunty

~ What She Loved

Was the purity in the lily

Graceful petals

Reaching heaven bound

As porcelain arms in praise

And the twisting winding roses

Traveling the trellis

Scaling the distance

Between roo

t and also heaven bound

Permeating her world,

Her waters seeping sensual oils

Then the wildness of the tiger lily

Growing wild and free

Surviving without tending

The tender touch

of the gardeners hands

Not required,

still exotic the pulsating petals

And the bleeding hearts

Delicate, dainty

drops of colors fused

And the reality represented in the name;

All hearts bleed,

broken by love lacking


fragile petals drop as tears falling

What she loved was beauty

Beauty, in all forms, fashions

And on bended knee

She, the gardener

Singing her songs of praise

In her own garden of delights

In the meadow there are flowers
but in the grasses growing tall
the vibrant red of poppies crown
and out-manoeuvre all

The daylight fades as sunset comes
and glowing through the trees
the wonder of this moment
brings me falling to my knees

Rose ‘n’ daisy

by Jem Croucher

The postman brought us yesterday
a box from two good friends
who’d very kindly, lovely flowers
to us, they’d thought to send
It really was a nice surprise
Gave us a warming glow
‘Cos it’s nice to get a present
by surprise from friends you know

How Now should we Handle these Water Lilies?

by Renwick Berchild

How now should we handle these water lilies?
One stone could break the sunset. I’ve a mind
to skip rocks, glide into a wade, feel beneath
with my bare feet, and leave you on the shore.
For night tiptoes, then jumps, weighing dusk in;
we’ve not much time, and this, is to my advantage.
In love, woman are ahead, and men behind; as luck
would have it, I am to be far beyond reach. I think
I may dunk into the blooms atop, and like a seabird
sail under you, as breaths waft alow heavy eyes.
Though by your height, your breath this late eve
has a clear path straight to my soul’s window.

Love of a kind…

by Tanya

Lying down
With those watery eyes
Feeling bad about
Those little fights..

And when those little ones
Churned out a big one,
Neither of us realised..

The Bud

by Tanya

A little you:
the bud 
still in its formative years,
moulded by what you hear..

Years to come,
when you would learn,
what transpired,
when you were young..

I opened the door
she stood there smiling,
beautiful woman that she is,
with a sense of glee in her voice
she said, “these are for you.”

she stretched out her hand
to offer me a gift
she brought me flowers
