Raspberry Leaves


tiny hydrangea flowers
hide among raspberry leaves,
like autumn-hued beacons

Notes: I wonder at the biological purpose of having these colorful false-petals hiding the tiny blooms. Are they billboards for bees or do they protect the blooms from being devoured by aphids? I like to wonder about things. Enjoy the new week, in all its magical mystery.
