a range of flowers
surrounds our nest
the lockdown gives us time
to see each other clearly

Meadowsweet and Thistle was first published in Ribbons, Spring/Summer 2020: Volume 16, Number 2. A very big thank you to Christine L Villa and the team at Ribbons for featuring my poem and putting this beautiful edition together.
Wishing you all a blessed Wednesday and a wonderful rest of the week,
with love from Xenia xxx
