    A Natural Selection # 15

    IN THE DEWY WINTER MEADOW

    In the dewy winter meadow
    I watch the dawn’s first rays
    Beginning to evaporate the mist
    In the majesty of winter days

    GALES ARE DRIVING WAVES

    Gales are driving waves
    Against the resilient shore,
    And pounding
    Them on to the rocks,
    While on the edge of the wind
    There is distant thunder sounding

    NOCTURNAL

    Nocturnal creatures scurry
    And bats take flight
    As the owl stands sentinel
    Over a woodland night

    THE FIERCE WINTER GALES

    The fierce winter gales
    Howl all through the night
    Whipping up the seas
    And turning wave tops white
    The poor souls at sea
    On the dark winter night
    In the teeth of the tempest
    Feel it’s savage bite
    And pray to their gods
    To save them from their plight
    As the gale blows through
    On the dark winter night

    IN THE DEPTHS OF PURPLE CLOUDS

    In the depths of purple clouds
    Soft and temperate as the night
    Masks the setting of the sun
    And hides the fading of the light

    THE FRENCH MARIGOLD – GOLDEN SOLDIERS

    The French Marigold is more than
    Just a pretty flower of the daisy family
    The Tagetes Patula is actually
    Native to Mexico and Guatemala
    With flowers of blended red and yellow
    Combine to give the pleasing sight
    Of the vibrant Golden headed sentries
    Along the herbaceous borders edge

    You took me there to those tormented seas.
    I saw those purple twilight skies.
    Beautiful poetry, Biggus!
