Once Fired

Fay Slimm.

Once Fired.


Across great lengths of flat impregnation

fattening seeds contentedly

burst forth with Spring.


and spread plough-brown with creative

green shades of seasonal swelling.


Thirstily rising to upright by inhaling 

sweet showers tall spires, 

drunk with mild sun, change pale

to reap-ready honey


and before long bee-covered stamens

 charge pollen with energy.


Springtime increase once fired contains 

ideal plant-feed for many.

    No use talking to me...Autumn is about to arrive...though after Summer that may be no bad thing...
    Love the optimism, Fay - I hope it comes true for you....

    Reading this as 'fired up' and that appears to have worked for this reader.

    I had been wondering why my stamens seem to have a mind of their own .. x

    So true Fay, that feed is there for us all in Spring.
