By Brian F Kirkham (inkdropk)

From deep among the woodland green

a musical flower sends out the call

swaying in the gentle breeze, it passes a message

from brother to sister it goes through the trees

as the messengers sway in the gentle wind

with the arrival of Spring

“wake up – one and all !

our message is clear

the winter has departed

and spring is now here…”

Captured by the artist, a field of wildflowers

Others might call it – a sea of blue

Round trees, and grass I see you

Navigating your path through the grass, helped by the breeze

Forming a trail, you and your kin, around the cows

Lovely flower, with spiky petals

Over the green fields you grow – a butterfly’s dream

When seen , its difficult to predict or

Expect what will happen to you, are you off on a journey or will you

Rest in the basket of a passing visitor

King 👑 of the wildflower beasts

in the centre of the lawn you survey your kingdom

blades of grass bow to your yellow mane

as your family sets root across the square of green

one day, it will be time to pass your crown 👑 to another

but until then enjoy your moment in the sun ☀️

providing shade for the beetles.

Humble wildflower, mistaken for a common weed.

Patches of your glorious gold – shine in the morning sun

Bringing a smile to insects and birds alike

As bright as the sun, wise men use you for medicine

and your cousins look on with their lion like stare

for in essence – they’re a pale imitation

while you can make the people better

all they can do, is make them sneeze!

Gods Green Carpet

They took a mechanical pair of scissors
To God’s green carpet
Sticky black runways linked city and town
Whilst up in the hills, mountain sheep frowned
Till one day men held their pride
Railway restored, roads no longer seen
All that were seen were lakes and valleys green
Feet travelled gravelled paths
As local wildlife took their bath
Wildflowers in arrays of colour
Created colourful scenes of life and fuller.
And large lorries made their way
As on another transport the goods did play
