Garden Flowers

walking through the garden I was struck by the
abundance of blooms. Everywhere the flowers 
peeked out, rich in colour and scent.

Stately tulips waft
in great patches of colour
pleasing to the eye

Hollyhocks giving height and beauty while 
gentle daisy's lay cloistered underneath 
grand hosta's lapping up the sun

Merry birds singing
unseen musicians playing
a most happy jig

In tune with the surrounding world
I listen to nature's choir so stirring to 
the senses as birds warble in joy

peacocks are strutting
across the vast lawns of green
most pleasing to see
