New Dish, New Growth and A Poem for May

I’m working my way through my new cook-book by the Hemsley sisters and tonight it was Moroccan Chicken, so colourful in the making and delicious in the tasting, served with cauliflower rice and fresh spinach leaves. That’s certainly one to repeat.

I do love to see the poppy buds emerging and look forward to every stage of their blooming.

I’m hoping the night stays clear enough to see tonight’s full moon and that all our white flowers with be lit up by the moonlight.

May Night 

The spring is fresh and fearless
And every leaf is new,
The world is brimmed with moonlight,
The lilac brimmed with dew.

Here in the moving shadows
I catch my breath and sing – 
My heart is fresh and fearless
And over-brimmed with spring.
