March – week 1

early March

the first whisper

of a blue iris

~

how the iris

keeps twilight’s counsel…

now I regret

telling you

my deepest secrets

~

like a rainbow

in a rain~heavy sky ~

goldfinches in our garden

~

across the bridge

a world I can only reach

through dreams…

from a gull’s white light

a perfect rainbow

~

upside down

a blue tit does acrobatics

in pursuit of an insect ~

and here I am

practising my handstands

~

the composure

of daffodils in bud

on this still, blue day…

grandmother, so dignified,

thrilled by fairground rides

~
