Sweet Violet



July 1st, 2011 · No Comments · Medicinal Plants Poetry Project

Behind one violet there is another
See, what is sweet about that –
Or yellow,

Every star emits
Yellow lilac light

Thick violet walls
Raspberry love –

Sweet sandhills draw upwards,
Violet-grit,

Tooth white stars

Brown silhouetted stole,
Soundhills needle

Looks,
That I am not
Writing about you at all.

Currents raging.
Violet: sweet as a ghost.
