Lines of Poetry

Tall Grasses
Like a great ocean
Wave after wave moves across
Tall grass lifts and bends

Patrol
Cracked ground baked and hot
Wild with rambling stick-brambles 
Soldier ants march on

Crabby
Awkward scuttle race
Mottled backs above stalk eyes
Exposed mud crabs run

Giggles
Fanning out in ease
Fast flip to dart back and forth
Giggles the goldfish

Night Lights
Traceries of light
Signal far out in darkness
Fireflies blinking

Deep End
Beneath the new growth
Deep in old lilac heartwood
Deep purple streaks hide

Flying Blind
Furious buzzing
Trapped in glue on curling strips
Brown fly paper death

Citrus Facts
Set on bottle necks
Sun-dried for weeks, colors stay
Become showpieces
