Orange You Blue?

Orange and blue flowers

Don’t be sad, don’t be blue,
The whole world is blooming, just for you!
Life might be hard, it might even be grim,
But the music of flowers is like a hymn.
Magic surprises await you here and there,
Under the stars, in the sunshine, everywhere!
I choose to greet magic with a saucy grin.
Gossamer castles built by the spiders’ spin,
Bluebells, lavender, and tiny white lily of the valley bells,
Daisies, Coneflowers, Foxglove: therein magic dwells.
A shady bench, a fragrance sublime, a reverie,
A friendly fairy, that is all I need to be happy.

  1. Nice. I think we could all use a friendly fairy. I hadn’t thought of lily of the valley in ages, but when I read the name, I could smell that cool, white smell that I loved as a child. Thank you for coming by to read my Charlotte story. 🙂


  2. There’s a lot of blooming going on at the moment, even in my slightly scruffy backyard, or I should say the backyard I overlook from my upstairs flat, as I don’t have much access to it! But there are some large white calla lilies – the glory of the scruffy backyard, they definitely are music to me! 🙂


  3. You know how to weave and spin those words, using the gossamer of your silken words and the magic of that beautiful mind of yours! The photograph and poetry were gorgeous! Smiles, Robin


  4. Reblogged this on Neues vom Hutschi and commented:
    Right now I published an Haiku with Magic. Indeed Flowers bear magic.
    It is the ring of light giving them magic.

    Magic from Dresden is arriving there as your picture reached me.


  5. Okay, lets try again:

    So pretty! Another one to Pin! lol
    Comforting and encouraging words therein!
    It’s a certainty at some stage that things get us down, we need to look around us and try to see the positive, when it is hardest to see is when we need it most!
