25 March: for Shay’s Word Garden

AI artwork, daffodils and tulips in cubism style, reds, yellow, blue and green

Proud Crowns and Coronets

The daffodils and tulips
gyre and dance in the garden.
Spritely. Nimble as if ageless,

swoop, swirl in March’s wind.
They’re a gold-sugared colour
of proud crowns and coronets.

It’s not arty or experimental
or nouveau, this garden, same
blooms, spring yellows, bluebells,

and bright globe-shaped tulips
with nebulous streaks like viral
red galaxies straight from Hades.

The genius of nature at work,
I suppose, and if I were a poet,
I’d find myself writing about it.

But instead, I just watch them
wobble about like toddlers.

  1. I’m so glad you are a poet. Lovely!


  2. I love the flowers gyring in the garden and “if I were a poet, I’d find myself writing about it.” So good.
