Comments about Maureen Pickford
Haiku (Three Snapshots)
Sunshine peeps through rain;
jewelled arc hangs in the air,
a crown overhead.
First butterfly flits
out of a blue April sky
air-kissed by sunlight.
Clouds wring out their rain,
birdbath overflows again,
wren bobs up refreshed.
Through the dappled shade I explored the ways
Of my new garden. Warm air stirred sweet scent
From all the roses, their silky heads bent
Against the heavy, sultry summer's day.
A new home but now miles and miles away
From your dangerous love and all it meant.
I'll miss you dearly but had to prevent
Feelings being found out along the way.
