A Leaf Unfurls

See all of the buds upon the trees
watch closely as slowly one unfurls
each tiny weeny leaf stretching out
one by one peeling away from the buds

Turning their faces up to the sun
some sticky buds much longer taking 
all sorts of shapes and different sizes
as they grow and cast their dappled shade

On the tender plants hiding below
shade lovers of stunning colours
scarlet red Hostas amidst bluebells
the trumpets waving on their long stems

All the sun lovers blooms open wide
drinking in the heat beaming down
tulips bright with merry stripes
all the colours of the rainbow

Swaying gentle in noon heat
tall hollyhocks stately bend
the early promise of a rose
scents abound flooding senses

So easy to lay back and drift off
sun shining down heats the skin
bees droning gathering nectar
such an idyllic place to rest awhile

    Hi Linda. I really liked this one. The imagery is vivid and I also love how a well crafted description of droning bees jumps out like a simple but brilliant lyric that makes a song. It is Not simple at all but You seem to be one of those writers who makes You think "great line, with I had thought of that"

    Such pinpointed details in this, that others might brush off as rather insignificant. We live in an amazing world when you really stop to look at things closely...
