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 Renwick Berchild

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 Renwick Berchild

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.

There were seagulls out there sunbathing
and blue flowers on display

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

A field of cyclamen grew wild

The Turning

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

your eyes were like myna’s wings and dark
with distress and delight stamped into the iris
thin phantom white hair like cotton in the light
smoke above us in weaves and ash scrapings

Nasturtiums do not like the cold
They do the same thing every year
Just the merest hint of frost
And they just wilt with fear

We love our little garden
It is more or less complete
Charming in the winter
But best in Summer heat

We have roses here and lavender
Jasmine on the wall
Virginia Creeper on the fence
Turns red as leaves they fall

Curled and curved and poised for lust
Withstand the winds and rains of April
Powdered lightly in pollen dust

Crimson in a Yellow World

by russtowne


The garden in front of our home
Is graced by many rose bushes.
My Beloved
Planted them
Many years ago.
I now nurture them.
Gorgeous yellow blossoms
Explode from a whole row of them
Vibrantly glowing in the warm sunlight,
Petals quivering with delight
From caresses of a gentle breeze.
