Daffodils by Mark R Slaughter


I fell in love –
Taken by the innocence of
Child-face daffodils:

Their perky April fanfares –
Clarion calls from yellow-ochre brass bands -
Presaging, rejoicing, calling us:

‘Here we are! Here we are! ’

Your My Refuge


Your my poem
my inspiration

You fill my day
with burning

In the stillness
of the night
I seek you out

Your my refuge
in the storm

The beat of my
without you
I would not be.
