The magnolias are in bloom

Hilliers Spring Blossom (8th April 2014)

Wake to the soothing song
of birds who exist
outside of history
and beyond our fragile
moral codes

Their song that says
let’s build a nest
let’s raise a family
let’s propagate
the species

let’s reproduce
the timeless harmonies
of generations past
knowing only peace
and the absence
of enmity

Is love really that complex
and if so should it be so ?
Surely dog eat dog is nothing
to be proud of nor blind
ambition nor envy nor hatred

The magnolias are in bloom
: admire their beauty
and ask for nothing more
than the warmth of affection
a hand to take your hand
