Flora near, mostly not native.

In porch pots,

invested down the lawn,

ending it,

just now firing up,

splayed on the trellis,

open all the way,

the same and every day new.

Full bloom along every wall.

A quick circuit of the house
all the ripeness newly sprung,

no special effort required,

lean in and click.

Some are done and disassembling,

some at perfect fullness,

theme and variations,

every foot,

all the way around

 but wait,

each one perfection of its kind,

from bud to bloom

yet each lovelier than the last.

Soul washed, and eyes washed,
in the rising gyer of another circuit.

Red-reds sometimes break the camera.

There has to be a setting


somewhere among all those menus


that each drop new menus down


in hyper-dimensional interaction

an option


that can tame


the red out.

Hurry spring, comes the hot breath of summer.

One day, as the stink bug watches,

IMG_20150509_183950869to get it done,
whether in the pots

the marauder buttercups are special forces,

saw-briar and blackberry and locust.

which is a little sad  for what it will take down
but a lot necessary for what it will allow to come up.

cannot stand against the native ferocity
always alert and ready to resume dominion.IMG_20150509_184236184

They will have it back, and soon enough,
but we shall extend our moment here a little longer.
With all due respect.
