Still
Garden
Succulents,
Thick and fleshy,
Summer heart pulsing,
Pride of Wood Elves,
Flowers not,
Dry Wit,
Root.

  1. Brenda, I am always captured by the pictures you offer, be it summer, fall, winter or spring. Being honest I am still trying to grasp poetry, and insight that comes with it. Sometimes the words slap me in the face and I get it immediately, other times, the words escape me. Take care, Bill
