Winter doesn’t always dazzle;
Sometimes it is simply enough
To offer ribbons of light and soft colour.

Sometimes, on a rare day of winter perfection,
Ice crystals coat the world —
Turning reeds and wire fences
Into small works of abstract art.
In fact, you can hardly tell the difference
Between nature’s beauty
And the artifice of a wire fence.
Both glitter with possibility.

Small villages around England compete
In the ‘Best Flowers’ competition every summer.
And Bramber is no exception.
The facades of pubs and inns
Are decked out in glorious technicoloured blooms.
Watering the flowers is quite a challenge —
You start from the top and let the water run down.
Even the windows of the building housing
The public toilets are decked out in petalled finery.
(And yes – Bramber has won the competition several times.)

There is something very appealing
About splashes of colour in the snow:
Green lanterns with the added dash of golden fur
Make the scene even more attractive.
As I continued on my snowy walk,
I turned back to see a lone lantern
Saying farewell in solitary beauty.
