In the shade of the lilac tree. (Poem)

In the shade of the lilac tree. (Poem)

One of my recent poems from the last few days, celebrating the ever present dance of nature through dance and colour.

 

In the shade of the lilac tree.

In the shade of the lilac tree
the bumblebee dances.
A shuffling flight between branches,
tripping the lilac fantastic.
stepping, left, right,
but always a salsa forwards.

Disco dance floor ablaze of lilac colour.
Fuzzy burnt orange, dazzle black,
bumble browns, blaze in contrast.
Dappled leaf light a shining glitter-ball.
In the lilac shade,
you'll hear pure jazz.


Tony Malone, July 2022.
