The colour you can't forget.

It sparks a fire in your eyes

that travels to your heart

and all of a sudden you want to dance.

Wonderful Weeds!

Common Knapweed...
The name hardly does it justice.

Centaurea, it's proper name,
suits it much better.

It sounds like a secret
and hints at a history of magic and mystery.

This weed casts a spell on me
every spring.

Its long ghostly fingers
and shimmering colours

catch my eye
and draw me in
and closer.

Purple Rain

We're quick to curse the rain.
We blame it for ruining
a day, any day,
our day.

But if you're lucky enough
to like flowers and photography

You will thank the rain
for the way it scatters its liquid diamonds
and multiplies the beauty
of everything.

Fellowship Of The Ferns

In the quiet of the forest
when no one is watching,
delicate ferns unfurl lacy,
fragile fronds.

With ghostly, green fingers,
they reach out

to connect,
one atop the other.

they are a single branch.
they form a magical,
green labyrinth.

A fellowship of ferns.
