Above my head loom,
legions of bright orchid blooms,
in my living room.

The blossoms fading,
bring cherries for birds' raiding,
the seasons, trading.

Sun on paws of cat,
basking on window warmed mat,
no room for a rat.

Don't know how to cope,
cloudy days drain all my hope.
There's no time to mope.

Weeping willow hangs
still in the calm of spring days.
Blooms force out of buds.

March 26, 2014

Sudden pink flurries,
ocean breeze on cherry blooms.
Sun coaxing leaves out.

New laptop, Windows
8, my head feels like bursting.
Netflix will cure that.

I download wrong app,
now I’m trying to read Dutch.
Play Store is no fun.

Drifting in dream-like
swirled patterns of pale pink snow,
cherry blossom wind.

No horse racing track
to entertain Dad and me.
Watch revellers instead.

Eve of Saint Patrick’s,
my Irish passport beckons.
Dreams of Emerald Isle.

Hours on Instagram,
time tends towards not being.
Now to check Twitter.

Drinking Earl Grey tea,
because it’s the queen’s favourite.
We’re loyal subjects.

Red and white striped bloom,
on gorgeous amaryllis,
makes a bold statement.

I’m weary from a
restless night, tossing, turning.
A hot bath restores.

A sunny day to
celebrate my glad birthday.
Spring blooms are presents.

Cherry blossoms wet
from showers protect new leaves.
Spring follows winter.

Wretched fasting for
blood tests makes me quarrelsome.
Soothing cup of tea.

March 6, 2014

Soft, pink, delicate
cherry blossoms slowly show.
I rush through breakfast.

Fantasies about
smashing the damn bathroom scale.
It’s just a number.

I can hear cars swish
past on the soaking wet road.
I sip my warm tea.

Some quiet chirping
after the winter rainstorm.
Calm before the spring.
