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.
Bright sunshine sparkles on the sea glimpsed through
Wall arches hung with patterns of rose lace
It gladdens my heart to know that this place
Will always be here to visit with you
So, here we sit on deckchairs white and blue
Companions throughout the lazy day
The clocktower chimes, our cares drift away
How lucky we are with nothing to do
Later on we'll take a stroll and climb down Jacob's Ladder to the sea
