Fleurs




On a bunny-gnawed old box
She lashed a lattice of wands.
A yellow word on a makeshift
Shelf will now define itself.

    1. Most kind! Process is characterized by simplification. Sometimes it takes minutes, sometimes years. Once or twice it consumed half a century. Pruning.

  2. I would like to second what Susan said above. Your way with words is always quite enchanting.

  4. Dear Geo.,
    A lattice of wands that will transform the seedlings into a sky of blue, or turn them into a chorus that praises morning-glory. Beautiful poem!
