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
dreams
with burning
desire

In the stillness
of the night
I seek you out

Your my refuge
in the storm

The beat of my
heart
without you
I would not be.
