Summer flowers in full array
awakened by the sun

By Charles Robert Lindholm


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

Travel & flowers

by Jem Croucher

It’s going to be a busy week
and I’ll be travelling a lot
So I’ll not mind so much
if the weather’s not as hot
London now it’s Monday
Southend on the morrow
Then Lincoln Thursday morning
returning Friday when I’ll borrow…

by A. Marie

I can walk the world in the Heronswood,
I can walk and talk with the horticulturists
and the nature gods. I can meet with cultures
I never knew, the Thalictrum, the Fuchsia,
the Phlox, the Hakonechloa. With my fingers
I can brush the Bishop’s Hat, with my toes

A glimpse of Spring

by Jem Croucher


I caught a glimpse of Spring
on the ground the other day
as a host of flowering crocuses
gathered there to say
that the sunshine’s getting warmer
so it’ll really not be long
before the sound from every meadow
is the voice of Springtime song

Oh Rain!

by Miriam Hurdle


Heavy rain pours in the morn of two to four,

Warm air lifting the clouds dropped the temperature.

Drip drop drip drop on the roof,

Sounded like a hypnotizing sooth.

Woke up to fresh misty air,

Hastily made a visit to my garden,

Iron, Undress and Grow in the Garden With Me

by A. Marie

Iron of dress, without meadowsweet tenderness,
Give up your ghost to me now, and we shall all bow down weeping.

Close to the creeping, I secure my hat,
Pick up my boots and walk
To the lavender-times, when I lived by my nose,
When I touched my crown into each rose and
Loved red.

The sun, some flowers and a smile

by Jem Croucher


Nasturtiums and Geraniums
in the bright sunshine
Taking pictures of them out there
because all of these are mine
Oranges and yellows
offset by splash of pink
All looking pretty lovely
and splendid, don’t you think?

Woman in the Japanese Zen Gardens

by A. Marie

Pollen breaks like water against your neck,
the garden hydrangea shifting beneath your tender caress.

I believe I have seen you someplace. Seen you
waltzing through the flames and the ghosts of the Downtown Proper.

The boy and the bindweed

by Jem Croucher


Walking out at lunchtime
I saw down at my feet
something from my boyhood
and a memory was piqued
Bindweed on the way to school
white flowers on the way
Picked and popped at passers’ by
on every summer’s day

the green will fade
to liquid gold
of Autumn shade
Past equinox
less sunlight hours
But warm enough
for many flowers
