FANTASTIC FLUTTERINGS, COLOUR ON CURT CORNERS

 

On dull days
when the sun
absconds from sky,
when grey grinds
gloom into gutters
and mothers utter
‘stay inside’,
children’s minds
flutter to unfold
like umbrellas opening;
colours cascading
over concrete clutter
like candy to calm
a calamity.

In the midst
of the mundane
and the murky,
inspiration catches
on the canvas of creation
like wings willing
to cut through clouds
and gain the grace
of the sun.

Children’s minds,
so magnificent,
hold matter so magical
that ordinary moments
can become such
extraordinary miracles.

    So pleased you’ve featured this again.. very fond of it because it’s one of the earliest reblogs I did – your wisteria poem and this one. I still remember the surprise and wonder of finding such beautiful words and their accompanying photos. I was SO fortunate to stumble across your work as soon as I ventured into the WP world!
