Narcissus morning

Whilst Weeding .....

Out in the garden, bending low, I catch
the scent of narcissi.
Flowers in clusters, facing the sun;
Petals doubled, cream-in-swirls
with tinge of apricot, 
and softest orange.
Such sweetness, such immeasurable joy,
On this young April morning.

This is an interim post whilst I sort myself out for the coming week; and try to discover why I am not feeling at all well. Hope to be back soon.

  6. Oh dear, so sorry that you're not feeling too good. I hope you have a quiet time over Easter.
    That's a beautiful poem, from someone who is useless with that sort of thing...
