Just for a little fun I thought I’d try to write a poem in 28 words for February – it wasn’t that easy and the result is not my best work! I wonder if you can do any better. Please feel free to post your efforts or links to them in the comments.
I’ve added a few photographs to brighten up the post, all were taken by Caroline Filer and are her copyright. They are not all strictly February photographs (well it is only the 2nd today!) but they illustrate the poem nicely and were all taken in the last two weeks.
February in 28 words
Snowdrops and daffodils
Battle through frosty earth
Spring flirts briefly with winter
But coal fires still burn in our hearths
Short days slowly lengthen
As February’s light strengthens
