Michael Edwards






Like gentle waves that leave the shore

Exposing silvered virgin sand

the seasons change across the land

and spring at last arrives once more


On early morning springtime days

as light through stained church window glass

night leaves its dewy stamp on grass

which glints and glitters in the rays


Life reawakes with natures clock

from fields to woods, from heath to gorse

and fresh clear rivers run their course

and chatter with the stones and rock.

    Good write but we have the joy of winter to come first.

    I do hope that that is a glass of fine Rioja on the table.

      Anything as long as it's red - not a favourite painting of mine - bit too twee!

              Just came back from a
              Spring drenched land.
              Unfortunately, not for a
              happy occasion!
              Nonetheless, I enjoyed
              your seasonal poem and
              the painting! You are
              amazing with your artistic
              talents! Here’s to you
              Michael Edwards!🍷

                You make me feel quite humble - I am so appreciative of your kind words.

                A clever rhyme & lovely poem, Michael. The imagery is fantastic in this one. Spring is a wonderful season & your painting is beautiful!

                I want to keep this in mind to chase away the snow I know that's coming first.
