Verdant – Word of the Day


The verdant sea of lush green and pink, as everlastings burst forth in their annual declaration of spring. Datjoin reserve on the Burakin-Wialki Road today.



Ah, spring, such seduction, such beauty,
a carpet of vibrant surprise.
At your invitation
I traced your rain gouged furrows,
I fell in love with you and
caressed your beauty as I
lay in your lush and verdant places,
never once averting my eyes.

  1. I thought I might feel jealous of your moving into spring but actually, autumn is my favourite season with winter a close second. It reminds me how we all need to slow down and hibernate sometimes… crawling into a comfy cave and sleeping for a few months sounds far too attractive right now.
    Beautiful poems x

  7. It reminds me of Eneabba, but they have mainly white and yellow, swathes of them, and it’s not a place I’d call verdant at any other time of the year, but Spring … the shows are magical.
