THURSDAY 13th MAY 2021 ~ FLASH FICTION ~ POETRY
by John Yeo
Spring the month of new life is here,
Blanketing the earth with short-lived beauty.
The shades of apple blossom mingle freely
With a sea of floral jewels below.
Apple trees, heavily laden with blossom.
Tall aged trees with gnarled wrinkled trunks.
The warm breezy zephyrs blow freely
Blanketing the ground with a carpet of petals.
Spring with a dazzling palette of colour,
Birdsong is deafening the morning hush.
Everywhere sounds of life abounding
The fertile earth is green and lush.
Daffodils with primroses peeking through
A multi-coloured patchwork of glory
Blanketing the earth with life anew
To continue an age old story.
