Small dreams of a Cancerian – SPRING

The book ‘Small dreams of a Scorpion’  by Spike Milligan had an enormous impact on me and inspired me to write poetry, a passion which has stayed with me ever since paging through the book over and over as a teenager.  Recently my husband bought a copy for me which is treasured.

Below is my attempted imitation Titled Spring

Naked winter boughs

Stretch for Spring

Reach for sensed

invisible thing
