Saturday poem …

June 22, 2013

Rain was forecast;

So I didn’t peg out the damp washing.

Instead I draped it dismally over the clothes horse

in the bathroom.

Later the sun broke through the clouds,

who had not produced rain

and longer threatened.

The clothes remained in their unattractive state.

And the Californian Poppies drooped dryly.

    We have some of the same poppies; lovely splashes of colour that perpetuate themselves, but the rain and wind have slightly damaged my lupins; so glad I got them staked up before the elements had a chance to strike first. The beautiful pale pink lilac was not so lucky; thousands of its tiny flowers now lie on the ground beneath.
