Ok so I missed a prompt yesterday. I was just about to write ‘my bad’ until I got a grip of myself and realised how much I hate this expression! Besides, why apologise when I have been taking a lovely and much needed Italian lakeside mini-break with a girlfriend? Enough of my ramblings – I am now back on track and today’s challenge is to write a poem that presents a scene from an alternative view point. After some recent discussions with our neighbours about the Trübeli (see featured image) I decided to write from their perspective.
From the Trübeli
Merrily we multiply across your Springtime lawn
Beady blue before your eyes from magic bulb we spawn
It’s fun to spread though you might dread
the bulbs from which we’ve sprouted
Between your neat allotment beds
Our cheeky charms are touted
We might be wild but don’t be riled
Deep down we are true blue
Us Trübeli of tempers mild
Bring Spring to life for you!
