Early rhubarb

Hidden in darkness
It pushes through black soil
Silent and unseen.

I lift the cover

A shock of pink curly stalks
And lime green yellow leaves
Shout in the sunlight.

A lovely moment on the allotment when I lifted the plastic cover which had kept the plant in complete darkness  -to reveal the most glorious colours! It makes me wonder why the best colours are produced in the dark? I am sure there is a spiritual truth to be teased out here….
