Happy Birthday Buddha!

 

planted in plastic tubes   hope   coming into leaf

broom   nothing but an explosion of custard yellow

yachts in full sail   the swans glide   2 white  5 grey

Rufus on my mobile    another Happy Birthday!

 

vetch   lady’s smock    kingcup    campion (pink & white)

swallows glance low    little origami planes

may blossom still balled tight    star clusters    dreaming

keeping my mouth shut to avoid inhaling insects

 

 

dressed in white   the Thai women   busy with flowers and candles

sky full of itself    a great canopy of cloud

spiked willow catkins    more animal than plant

our small bouquets   offerings   raffia tied

the monks lead our procession  –  five shades of saffron

a dandelion clock says it’s time    yes    now
