Poem112 – My World is Bright

Mikes view 10:3

My world is bright

A myriad of colour

Every shade and hue of green

Beyond my back door.

I contrast in my many blues

But I welcome the reds and the purples

The yellows and the splashes of white

I see within my garden.

A butterfly flutters past

Black and gold wings

Flocks of birds, the colours of nature

Some blending, some prominent

They chorus among the red bottlebrush

Fighting over the dark seed pods

Messing the floor below with

Droppings of their unique kind.

In the cool of the afternoon

We sit among this riot of colour

Your beige giving way

To the eclectic shades

Thrown before us.

  1. What a serene backyard view you have too. Beige hmm reminds me of a joke. Nice colour/nature observations.

  2. I can see your garden well sounds lovely x

  3. I love the first line and ‘droppings if their unique kind’ also made me smile. Just two days ago I was looking at a whole lot of purple bird droppings on cement, thinking how pretty they would be if they hadn’t come from an animal’s backside. Lovely poem!
