Spring Forward

The days are just a little  longer, the light a touch clearer, and the clocks have gone forward: spring is officially here. Midlothian poet and artist, Jacqueline McDonnell celebrates by putting some colour into our lives over this early Easter break.

HENRY

Henry,

the Basenji,

yodels but does not bark,

speaks his own hypnotic language

breaks hearts.

 

 

Mindful Spring

My mind

meditative

sitting so quietly

watching Buddha under the tree

dripping.

Dripping

but sheltered

by the burgeoning  cherry

waiting for sun to come

yearning.

Yearning

for cold to pass

for lighter mornings and

warmer days to open pink buds

of hope.
