>Spring in Rhoose.


We’ve had some beautiful weather recently – it makes it a little difficult to imagine the Volcano in Iceland, but I’m enjoying it all the more for that reason.

Walking the kids to and from school has been inspiring – I’ve written two poems in three days!

I thought you might like to see them.


Spring Sunshine

The humble fuzzy bumble bee,

Buzzing ‘round the flowering tree.

Sipping Nectar here and there,

Delivering pollen everywhere.

The elegant fluttering butterfly,

Hovers o’er flowers nearby,

Delicately tasting from each bloom,

Feeling no need to rush or zoom.

As the sunshine brings the sky to life,

Stop to look and forget your strife.

Remember peace is always near,

When you stop to look and hear.


Spring Colours

Green tipped brown,

Reaches to blue.

Gold smiles down,

At white peeping through.

Yellow and pink,

Compete for the eye.

Red wins the day,

Looking up at the sky.


I hope that you like them and they give you a sense of what I see when I wander about the village.

My Photography skills aren’t the best and I have an old digital camera that doesn’t get the fine detail properly, no matter what I do with Photoshop!

I love spring sunshine and sea air – the scent of the salt in the wind brings back memories of my childhood and relaxes me almost as much as sitting on the sea shore.

I wish I had a laptop so that I could find a warm sheltered spot in the sunshine and write outside. I’m sure that I would get a lot more done!

I hope that you’re enjoying spring where you are… what is it like for you?
