Neil Creighton


See how
on this rainy day
the honeysuckle
dresses in cream and gold

and how
on frosty mornings
the humble wattle displays
her summery-yellow sprays

or how
through the gloom
of grey cloud’s cluster
the sun pokes his bright toe

and hope that
in whatever darkness
come splashes of yellow and gold
and descending columns of light.
