Velvet Wings


The iris’s velvet wings
make me remember summer slides,
pumping swings,
noisy beaches with music thumping,
precious things,
purple, pink and potent until the
hornet stings.

Note: I hope the hornet doesn’t find you, but summer’s beauty does! For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, may my photograph bring summer near.
