Warm Sun

Sock Monkey  had a day off and spent it very wisely. This is one of many outstanding pictures. Thank you, Monkey.

sweet whistles
give a voice to fringed
white snowflakes;
an illusion held aloft,
stopped on the bough
of gravity –
glinting sunshine
is the buttery Yellow Warbler
swaying for an instant
before flashing out
to swing on sprays of grape vines
like a yellow sunbeam
making daylight
pale into the shadows
hidden between the willows
in wet, lush marsh.
Song comes
from small, strong whirling leaves,
half green of spring,
half autumn yellow,
its restless flitting
and soft, low warbling trills;
become the melody
from a long journey –
on the wind they dreamt
of blossoms, buds, balmy air, sunshine,
and lilac speckles of home
where they blend like the petals of
grass gown daffodils.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
