April 2022

Bluebells are profuse…

White-tailed bumble bees
wrestle bell heads to the ground
in loud half-nelsons..



A little rain must fall…

Rain gently whispers
limitless variations,
like an old Jazz score.



Incredible gorse blooming this year…blooming incredible!

Gorse claims this April,
exploding hot yellow clouds
on Winter-green hills.



Dark, glittering nights…

High on its own light,
new moon cracks a crooked smile.
Revelling in Spring.



The blackthorn blossoming begins…

From sharp, black, bare lines
to creamy-cloud profusion.
Blackthorn time again!
