Heronswood

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

the falls

by briannadawn

i often envy cherry blossoms and clouds
because when i slip, my fall hits hard
i scrape my hands, bruise my knees –
yet when i stand under cherry blossom trees
as a breeze kicks up its heels, all i feel

hush chills

by briannadawn

the leaves twist their fingers
telling the wind to hush
as it prattles on, rushing across
the necks of rivers, slithering up
the spines of bridges, biting

I am truth
in its most natural form;
I have brothers and sisters who are
different
tho just as true.
I sometimes stand alone

Sidewalk

She went for a walk,

Tripped on the sidewalk.

Bruised her elbow,

Broke her ankle.

New

by Jem Croucher

IMGP9573

There is darkness in amongst the trees
Here in Hampshire’s land
A thousand years of history
From William’s era stand
Trenches and Inclosures
Slades and moors and hill
The wild land of New Forest
remaining heathland still

Bequeathed by grace

by Jem Croucher

IMGP9441

Bereft of foliage
great trees stand
proudly gracing
England’s land
There amongst
the winter green
the rolling landscape
clearly seen

The last laugh

by Jem Croucher

IMGP9195

It’s raining leaves out there
they’re just pouring down
The wind’s blowing a ‘hoolie’
and the trees wear a frown
By the time the storm’s over
they’ll be naked and bare
and the winter will laugh
at their bashfulness there

Conkers

by Jem Croucher

IMGP8980

I’d turn back time
(If only I could)
For I’ve a bag full of conkers
which I found in the wood
Recalling the days
of muddied scuffed knees
Long days in the sunshine
and the climbing of trees

A walk in the woods

by Jem Croucher

IMGP8887

Dappled sunlight filtered through
the green tunnel up ahead
as carefree there we wandered
uncertain where it led

Not that we were bothered
for we cared not for the time
on such an afternoon as this
with autumn weather fine

Peeps are singing
Their secret song,

With water notes
Soft, then strong

Dream Sand Castles

by Colly

cool girl yellow

Golden apples and sunsets in May.
Cherished memories to keep for always.
A dolly carriage, full, of carrots to the brim.
A neighbor, left, quibbling, “the carrots are gone.”
Cucumbers in a garden taste so right.
“Such a delight you veg’s could, all, gather here t-day.”
A cherry tree echoes of sweet ruddy treats.
Clusters of jubilant fruit bobble on stems.

More colorful

Gray
Splashes of red, gold

Bare heads
Without color
Scratch their limbs
Along the grey sky
Seeking escape
From gaia’s shackles
In vain
