Seasonal Tongue Twisters - Not Quite Haikus - Poem by Alison Cassidy

a carpet of amber -
fallen leaves flutter
their final diminuendo

a carpet of white -
a pair of cold magpies
print sets of maple leaves

a carpet of buzzing -
pink prunus blossoms
tempt Winnie ther Pooh bees

a carpet of red dust -
Rhodies* fluff feathers
in forty degree heat

*Rhode Island reds (hens)

    Love the fusion of colour, movement and spectacle that make each of these finely woven 'carpets' exude their own magic... perfectly captured snapshots Allie - could even feel the heat from the last one! Justine xx (Report) Reply

    Allie, I would love to do a stage play with you where the spectators don't know you.
    I seldom catch when you write something here (too many things on) but I always feel a breath of genuine kindness.
