Poetry – John Phillips – Colours

Another from John Phillips book Shorts and Shots


The birds are singing

Blackbird louder than the rest

Daylight on the way.

Red against the grey

Sunrise lights the morning sky

The clouds are burning.

Searching for breakfast

Robin Redbreast struts his stuff

King of the garden.

Whiteness in the gloom

Snowdrops carpeting the wood

A promise of Spring.

See the flash of blue

Across the rippling stream

Kingfisher is here.

Wind is in the west

Blowing from indigo sky

Soon the storm will come.

After the sunset

Purple filled evening sky

Birds are flying home.
