Glorious Gorse.

Greying, frost burned branches,

hanging low as they sun turns

and warms them, calling out,

nature yawns and slowly wakes.

Slowly the buds come and each

sunny day fresh green mixes

with the winter gloom and cold,

giving hope of a golden rebirth.


Everywhere around daisies glow,

tiny violets and bluebells delight,

their blue melding together with,

sky and the wave whispering shore.


Then, gorse buds glow with sunlight,

their smiling faces as snapdragons

pulsing, gilding the grassy landscape 

glowing even on the darkest days.


April time. The gold painted gorse

fills the cool air with sweet coconut,

and sunlight smiles back at the sky, 

with joy for the

glorious blooms on smiling gorse.

margins are a great place sometimes because it is where change happens fastest but it is also a horrible place when we are stuck in them and grace is the moment when we can see that someone cares.
