Soundtrack to a Sunday in Spring

My response to imaginary garden with real toads April Poetry Month – Day 4 – “Nature Poetry”


Sunshine caresses buds,

blesses a blackbird

perched on a branch

of awakening willow,

jerking and jinking.

Beyond the gate,

boats on the river

are bobbing and chinking.

An undertone,

the distant thrum

of a Sunday mower

has begun.

    1. Thank you, Rosemary. I did a bit of pruning yesterday as the weather was good and it inspired me. Today, it’s raining again but that didn’t stop a baby deer from helping out by eating some of yesterday’s cuttings that I left on the ground! 🙂
