Monthly poem - June 2019


Roses are everywhere,
big and blousy;
the barmaids of the garden,

tipping over walls and hedges
opening, loosening,
their hearts on their sleeves.

Calling in bees
crawling over stamens
with trembling insect knees

and the wild dog rose
makes water-colour splashes
on the darkening leaves.

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
her poems glow like impressionist paintings.

Love wells up out of Jehane Markham's work... it made me cry.
