Gentle giant

You are the mellow vines
ripe at the touch of Autumn.

You are a blue alphabet
falling from the sky…

You are the amber leaves
lured in the sleep of Winter.

You are the macadamized trance
of flowers
when Spring is climbing up the trees.

If you are not the fragrant moon
to bread stars from shimmering flour
You are the color of fire
that burns in everything you see.

    What lovely thoughts to come home to after a lovely walk in the sun, albeit with a biting cold wind, meeting a good friend for a chat in her warm kitchen as she was preparing Sunday lunch (the sort of friend for whom you cannot arrive at an inopportune time) and talking to the ladies who lay our eggs. As ever, thought provoking too ❣️

      Sounds like a lovely afternoon πŸ™‚ It was cold here too, no cycling party for today. But tomorrow is another (lovely) day. I have put all my warm wishes in a bag which I keep at hand so I can extract a few for lovely friends πŸ™‚

            Aww Iulia, you remembered my pet name: ‘Cherry!’ – It’s been over a year since we had that conversation! I am beyond impressed! πŸ™‚ Thank you for the warm wishes – I needed them – the temperature in London is pretty close to zero – ok, so I exaggerate.:))) πŸ’šπŸ’š πŸ’šπŸ’š

      Thank you! πŸ™‚ You are right, my source of inspiration for BLUE was this song:, and the Alphabet is any kind of kind “message”. I thought of music, yet again. πŸ™‚
      But if you wanna start your hip-hop band, you can use the name, and I’ll write the lyrics πŸ˜‰
