d3d0f42f5d9412f238b56ad4ab5f7e5eMy Featured Blogger this week is Ali Bailey, a UK-based poet who, in her own words, has “never found a use for this habit.” And so, she says, “I thought I would just gather my poems together here, in one place, in the hope that they might make you smile.”

They do. Every time I visit her blog. And I’m pretty sure her warm, sanguine, and frequently witty words will do the same for you.

Ali

No matter how bleak the winter
No matter how bare the tree
Still, in spring, each twig
Dreams big.
Silver tips
Bud,
Unfurl:
Emerald curl;
In sure belief of summer’s sun, yet to come,
A verdant host of new leaves grow
Catching life’s good golden glow:
Benediction.
Hope – not fiction.

Let me be, like that tree,
Ever primed to start again.
After pain,
After cost,
Hope’s not lost.

Leaves catch light from high above
Hearts re-grow to capture love.
Another chapter to our story,
Another summer’s green-leafed glory.
