Daffodil

I saw a daffodil whilst walking the dog,

Its future leaves and flower still wrapped

Together, tightly, into a green stalk, a dash

Of colour amid the browns and greys of the

Leaves-less branches of the bushes above.

I saw a daffodil whilst walking the dog.

And my heart skipped a beat for that

Speck of Spring smiling my way.

It was dark, it was rainy and the stubborn

Dog would not poo. But the promise

Of life renewed created a little

Rainbow from the cloud in my mind.

And I could not help but to smile

And skip with the dog all the way back.
