dusk arising

a little of England




Come with me now
into the lush of green
where buttercup
and daisy frolic
beneath the wisdom
of oaken tree
and listen.


Listen with me
upon the gentle bank
to babbling brook
of natures gathered rainfall
as she writhes
in captured swell over
boulders of yesterday
kissed smooth
beneath her dance.


Glimpse dazzle of
iridescence as
damsel-fly hypnotise
in sunlight to
tease reflections
across miandering flow.
A celebration of
blue and turquoise hue
in gymnastic suspense
neath whispered hum
of angelic raindow wing.


Feel the refreshing
cool tickle of
the blue sky's sister
breeze and catch
her tussle amid
branches rhythmic sway,
and here..


upon the softness
of verdant
carpet grassland
share my words today
and picture with me
a little of England
in springtime beauty.

      Thank you Rose. When my muse is really inspiring me it's a pure joy to play with words and create a picture such as this.

        Just looking outside to the ice.
        Springtime when I unhibernate sounds fantastic.

        • dusk arising

          Oh I know only too well the sentiment behind your words. For health reasons I have been shielding since July.... i'm trapped indoors and my mouth waters at the thought of being free again in the springtime.

        • Neville

          yep .. that's got me all seasonally nostalgified ... roll over winter and make some room for me and my mistress spring ...................... N

          • dusk arising

            Now that's a cracker of a word 'nostalgified'. Dontcha just love it how free we can be on here with the English language.... if it sounds right, it IS right. Thank you again Neville.

            Superb England of my childhood and youth,to a fine art.
            I would never live anywhere else.

            • dusk arising

              I'm just the same, I don't even want to holiday anywhere else. Thanks for looking in and commenting Neil.

              a celebration of all-things
              majestically Green
              in our beloved, Blighty!
              and a lovely read, Dusk
              thanks for sharing
              I just love, those last two stanzas

              • dusk arising

                Thank you LBM. The countryside is so inspiring even when it is out of sight and in a season five or six months away from my shielding existence. I can't wait to get out there in springtime/summer and enjoy it.

                Gould blimey, what have I told you about talking dirty to me? 🤣 I'm once again gushing you are my Romeo!

                How wonderful it could be

                to run in the meadow

                wth my dusky! 🤣🤣🤣

                Love yah! 💖

                • dusk arising

                  Get yer kit off gal, i wanna see you paddling in the icy cold water of a springtime stream. Have you ever dangled your toes into the stream which flows through Bourton-on-the-Water in Gloucestershire. In hot mid summer it's freezing cold on yer twinky toes.

                  • Teddy.15

                    lol 💖

                    'Good write dusk.
                    'Now to be in England, now that April's there'. That's the correct wording, I think.

                    • dusk arising

                      I want to go up to Scotland in April before the midges arrive. Now there IS a beautiful country.

                    • spilleronsheet

                      So beautiful Dusk
                      Such strong imagery
                      The dull winters subsided when you painted with poetry
                      The flowers shall bloom in hope of melting snow
                      The greenery shall spread across after witnessing the bloom
                      Well crafted dear poet

                      • dusk arising

                        Thank you Spiller. The beauty of England in springtime did all the work, i just felt the inspiration.

                      • Goldfinch60

                        Beautiful d a, I was there in the wonder of Nature's glory.


                        • dusk arising

                          And i trust you will see a good many more springtimes to enjoy Andy.

                          A Real Poet , not like me lol
                          beautiful poem , skillfully written ,

                          • dusk arising

                            You are just as good a poet/songwriter as any on here my friend. We each have our differing styles and a collection of differing styles apportioned to each one of us. My poetic writings have much improved since joining MPS and reading so many poems on here, learning more as I go.
                            Thank you for stopping by and commenting.
