CREASES AND CURVES


by John Yeo

Poets and artists struggle to replicate

The creases and curves of natural power,

Beginning with a bud waiting to burst

When creased, crumpled petals spring apart

Unleashed with the birth of a simple flower,

Heralding the birth of Spring daffodils

~

A host of power inspired the poet to meditate 

Whilst overcome with sheer admiration. 

Turning the scene into powerful verse

Recreating the scene through his inner eye

Moving and dancing in the breeze

Trumpeting the birth of Spring daffodils

~

A sight to inspire the artist’s palette

To replicate curves and creases through art,

Golden coloured, stately trumpets nurse,

The ability of pigment to portray reality,

Shapes and shades the admiring eye

Replicating the beauty of Spring daffodils.
