I wish

I wish

I was the chubby grey cat

curled up tight,

dozing in warm sunshine

watching a garden symphony unfold.


I wish

I was the scarlet rose hips

high above the trellis

eying the changing colours of  day,

listening to the whispers of trees

eaves dropping

on the secrets of rose buds

or the bitter woes of sobbing poppies,

gossiping with hot pink hibiscus

on the dark underworld of leaves.


I wish

I was a striped bumble bee

whizzing from lilac to lavender,

or a fluttering butterfly

sipping on sweet nectar,

or a fat spider

weaving silken webs,

spinning trapped lives to death.


How nice it is

to daydream

looking out on a barren garden

on a slate Winter’s day.

  1. One I wrote when in 2011 and just updated a little to post here, nothing like daydreaming of a summer garden on a slate grey day. x
