Colours I love




Of late: 
soft blossom red 
and daffodil yellow
reminding us that Spring is near

Right now:
Hopping and skipping in many shades of blue

This week:
going highlighter crazy with Arabic revision 
(the only excuse for using fluorescent colours I say)

This month:
quilting gently on my knees
through beloved fabrics

And slinging bright cotton and appliqué over my shoulder

Preparing and eating
lunches that are 
warming
and bright
And watching 
saffron threads turn golden 
in cups of warm milk with honey -

that remind me of the daffodils,
and that Spring is near.
