Read introduction

Last week was a strange and exhausting week of ups and downs, joy and and hurt; shadows and light. I noticed that each time the shadow seemed dominant, the sight of the daffodils spurting up all around the city of Edinburgh and its beautiful gardens sparked new brightness and optimism. So, I have looked out several of my daffodil poems and will post them now... Hope you enjoy and wherever you are, and whatever the season, you can smell the long awaited Scottish spring!

Armful of Daffodils 2

She has daffodils clutched
like a hugful of flames -

torching her petroleum smile.
Blue gas rings of her eyes.
