Yesterdays

by Venkat

yesterdays stole my shine
to flaunt their windy pride
I wear no coat for smiles
but buttoned by same dews
each morning, every morrow

A Dark Peace

by Abigail Gronway

I didn’t mean to be found there
huddled in the corner—
red face and swollen eyes
were to have been protected by

Heavenscent

by Jem Croucher

It possesses a certain
something that soothes
and reminds me of summer
with its calming moods
Just a squeeze of the sachet
when winter is here
or a rub between fingers
when summer is near

On the breath of a morning
I caught in the air
a lingering fragrance
subtle and rare
A remnant of summer
to cherish and hold
and remain with me as
the autumn turns gold

Lavender for a smile

by Jem Croucher

20160730_084909

Yes, I know it looks lovely
in the sunshine out there
But, cropped now its fragrance
is filling the air
So, for double the pleasure
I have a lavender pile
Whilst outside there’s new growth
with crop two for a smile

has blossomed now it’s May
And its fragrance is abundant

Breathing in with good intent

A fragrance lingers

by Jem Croucher

(9) footbridge (2002)

Lingering on the dying embers
of a winter’s day
a subtle fragrance lingers
in a most enticing way
It is partly one of woodsmoke
heavy on the air
and partly one of winter
quintessential there

My lavender hides a memory
deep within its scent
One of when the days were warm

It’s a fragrance steeped in whimsy
which conjures up a smile
as in these winter days I breathe
its aroma in a while

Freshly cut grass

by Jem Croucher

that has been freshly mown
for it reminds me of the summer
and the kindness it has shown
There’ve been many days of blue
with not a cloud in sight
When the sun in all its splendour
has shone with all its might

Idyllic

by Jem Croucher

 

I love my garden at this time of year
It is really quite idyllic
Can’t exactly tell you why
as there’s nothing quite specific

But it’s a lot about the colour
and the lushness that’s out here
in the rain or in the sunshine
as it always brings good cheer

Columbine

by Joelly Cameron

Columbine’s sweet fragrance dangles.

Like a rusted clasp on a string of pearls, while

the morning doves obsessively peck at nothing. The,

pair, life’s ethereal mate.
