Kerri Shying R - # 158 - Posy


safe tonight   stand guard here
 by me petal

pale inked cotton   indigo
 on sea-stain  hydrangea

 assembled with the stamen-button centres
of a 1960’s sofa

hold tight    to the warm
fur of those upright

kangaroo paws    let them reach
out to the lisianthus standing mauve

 close to hand the furled umbrellas
loaded set for bloom


  1. insects come through the screens
    it's the heat
    the old rules won't apply

    hope for rain
    keep up the water

    1. Kit I wrote a poem for you to respond, kind man but you know, I couldn't do it in one day! It is coming.
