on love

speak not of absence
what is it that you value
flowering rosebuds

on colour

she gave me a rose
reminiscent of summer
yellow, without thorns


n.b. Gratefully received.

CLP 18/05/2022

on friendship

even in winter
bud swells, bursts into flower
come now, what's to fear?


n.b. Alternative last lines:

come now, what’s to fear

all we have is time

all we need is time

warmth of Sun draws bloom
