After weeks of being unwell, I was cheered by the sight of the
rhododendrons full of tight buds, reminding me that, although
it was a long way away, Spring would come
, the buds would open
and their glorious flowers would shine out. Warmth
and colour would be in the world again.


Those tight little buds are waiting
For next Spring.

Thereโ€™s no sign of hurry,
No hint of impatience.

In fact, just looking at them
Reveals an alternative world

To the one we live in.

  1. How kind you are! I am slowly getting better but I have to admit it’s certainly slowed me down.
    I write when I can which cheers me up – as has your lovely post on street art. We could do with them
    in our town! Take care and stay safe.
