Yellow Lily

   she is a yellow lily
      buried in a floral 
department bouquet.

nobody knows
   how difficult
      everything
has become.

   winter is a day 
in an icy desert,
      a perpetual
frosty nightmare.

   listen to the
      chatter of
freezing teeth,

   know that this 
is a time for fire
   and fireplaces.

      understand it is
a season to comfort,
   to be comforted.

   a day will come
when green meets
warmth, creating
      excitement. 

   meanwhile we
   will comfort
ourselves with
      her beauty

she is a yellow lily
      buried in a floral 
department bouquet.

    I remain in awe of this dimension of the seasons
    Winter is not unreasonable, rather sensible and fair
    And reasonable in her demands, to rest, comfort and be comforted
    Snowdrops, Winter Jasmine, Pansies and Violas and Winterberry
    All are exquisite and fragrant winter blooms.
    Wrap yourself up warm.

    Tied up in thankfulness and enjoyment
    – Yellow Lily, (that’s what she symbolise)

      1. You’re very welcome indeed
        Yes that how it seems to be with poetry and pictures etc, some always resonate. .

        Well done on the sculptures! Maybe you could post pics and verse on these…😊

      2. Thank you d.a.!

        I like your ‘resonate’ idea. I think that many works that resonate with me might not even be all that good. But I like them.

        Sculpture is 3D. Photos don’t work the same way. I like making abstracts. I like textured surfaces. Its more than 10 years since I made any. They are all owned by a fine art painter in western Canada.
