“A Childs Garden”
She played in the garden from dawn to dusk.
Talking to everyone but finding no one
Faces in the window watched with glee.
For this she never ever not see.
Flowers hang high on stakes to the sky.
Like colours of the rainbow after the cloud’s cry.
She smelt the earth beneath her feet, tangled berries kept.
High away from tiny hands reach.
Garden shed became her home, ragged carpets, broken dolls.
Worn books to read aloud, with pictures and tales from days of old.
From the window lies the heather, purple haze against the hill.
She follows her steps to the garden’s edge.
To will want life that lies ahead….

“The Poppy Field”
Beneath my house lies a poppy field
Slashes of red as far the eye can see
Like glazing rubies in the sun.
Is where I leave summer mornings and run.
I lie buried in my bed.
With buzzing bees around my head.
I gaze at the cloudless sky
For a sight money could never buy.
Gently summer breeze lifts little red shots.
Up they go further and further away
Like splashes of colour the artist dismay.
Telling my mind it was meant that way!
