Azalea, Kindness and John Agard

06 Nov

The shocking pink of an Azalea caught my eye on my way up from town.

Pink Azalea

At singing tonight, I loved the display in the corridor of the Primary School.

Kindness

In honour of the rainbow I saw the other day, a delightful poem by John Agard for you. Read it out loud to yourself to get the full effect.

 

 

RAINBOW

When you see

de rainbow

you know

God know

wha he doing –

one big smile

across the sky –

I tell you

God got style

the man got style

~

When you see

raincloud pass

and de rainbow

make a show

I tell you

is God doing

limbo

the man doing

limbo

~

But sometimes

you know

when I see

de rainbow

so full of glow

& curving

like she bearing child

I does want know

if God

ain’t a woman

~

If that is so

The woman got style

man she got style

6th anniversary of writing my blog

    As for the Azalea. This response is directed to the blossom not you. SHOWOFF! We received our first snow of the season last night and tonight it is -12C. So said blossom can count its lucky stars it does not life here, as he or she would be Toast now.

    You know me, I like to ride rainbows, so the poem was music to the heart -fun to read. Happy 6th in blogdom – stand up take a bow.
