Dive In

Yellow, orange..... what?

As deep as you can,
dive in.
Breathe,
and forget
children’s voices
even the robin, singing.
Be astonished,
the shock
of yellow,
spotted with fire
like a fallen sun.

    1. Ha! I like ‘cute’! To be honest I’m surprised I pulled it off, crouching down on the bank at the side of a footpath and wobbling…. with my phone camera. Saved by technology!

  1. Yay you, dapplegrey! Everywhere I look this week, there are tulips and daffodils in bloom, so gorgeous I want to photograph or paint or write about every one–and now you did it for me. Perfect cup of spring.

    1. What a wonderful phrase that is – ‘perfect cup of spring’! Yay to you, for what would have been an even better title! But write about your tulips and daffodils. Or paint them or photograph them. You have to, please!
