Music Monday – Yellow

 

I came across a massive field of dandelions on my bike ride the other day and just had to hop off my bicycle to try and capture a piece of the magical scene with my phone, it was like looking out at a sea of pure sunshine.  While I was looking out at it I heard a line from Coldplay’s song “Yellow” playing in my head…

“And it was all yellow”

 

Except when against the blue of the sky…

How can anyone hate dandelions?  They’re like bright little stars shining in a field of green and “Look how they shine for you.”

 

I like the sound of the studio version of this song better, but listening to any music in concert is always fun, and this one is “all yellow”  😉

 

May bright things shine for you this week…

Spring Rains

 

Nourishing droplets dance on my skin

Exhilarating and refreshing

are the spring rains

I got caught in the rain yesterday, and as I hurried to get indoors to escape it, I suddenly paused and realized how wonderful those raindrops felt on my skin –  cold, but exhilarating, and oh so refreshing.  Ah…  let the rain fall, washing away all worry and strife…

So what if I arrive at my destination soaking wet – at least I’m clean.  😉

Desire Awakens

 

Beneath your fragrant boughs

seduced by your alluring scent

desire awakens

Flower Chorus

 

“O such a commotion under the ground,
When March called, “Ho, there! ho!”
Such spreading of rootlets far and wide,
Such whisperings to and fro!
“Are you ready?” the Snowdrop asked,
” ‘Tis time to start, you know.”
“Almost, my dear!” the Scilla replied,
“I’ll follow as soon as you go.”
Then “Ha! ha! ha!” a chorus came
Of laughter sweet and slow,
From millions of flowers under the ground,
Yes, millions beginning to grow.

“I’ll promise my blossoms,” the Crocus said,
“When I hear the blackbird sing.”
And straight thereafter Narcissus cried,
“My silver and gold I’ll bring.”
“And ere they are dulled,” another spoke,
“The Hyacinth bells shall ring.”
But the Violet only murmured, “I’m here,”
And sweet grew the air of Spring.
Then “Ha! ha! ha!” a chorus came
Of laughter sweet and low,
From millions of flowers under the ground,
Yes, millions beginning to grow.

O the pretty brave things, thro’ the coldest days
Imprisoned in walls of brown,
They never lost heart tho’ the blast shrieked loud,
And the sleet and the hail came down;
But patiently each wrought her wonderful dress,
Or fashioned her beautiful crown,
And now they are coming to lighten the world
Still shadowed by winter’s frown.
And well may they cheerily laugh “Ha! ha!”
In laughter sweet and low,
The millions of flowers under the ground,
Yes, millions beginning to grow.”

renewal

to the winter-wearied soul

in spring

On a Warm Spring Day

 

Bright sunlight illuminates the delicate, white petals of apple blossoms

as they scent the air with their luscious fragrance

Beauty, purity, softness

sweet and sensuous

And I’m filled with longing

For you

to be in my arms

underneath those lovely flower-filled boughs

Our joy overflowing

the beautiful refrain of our laughter mingling together with the sweet melody of the Robin’s song

Come away with me honey

my sweetheart

my love

lets make the most of this glorious, warm spring day
