Poem – Garden/Rain

As today is National Poetry Day I thought I’d share a piece of poetry I’ve written on here. I wrote this a couple of months ago to send in to BBC Radio Devon after they asked people to send in poems about the garden and rain (it was so cool to hear it read out on air!) since this is now long gone from BBC iPlayer I thought I would share it on here.

Garden/Rain

A wood-pigeon’s wing
rose above its head
as if warning humans
of the thunder and lightning ahead

As the raindrops lessened
the leaves still glistened
many plants look more vibrant
some a bit less liked it

The rhubarb plant looks taller
the bees have returned to pollen
the garden certainly needed
some rain water after all of the heat
