It’s the last day of the first week of school. The bloom of excitement is beginning to wilt with fatigue. Adrenaline no longer feeds the morning and the days are still hot, hot, hot.
Walking into Trader Joe’s, I spied my favorite flower.
a shock of sunlight within violet blue
Van Gogh irises.
collected in a vase
brighten interiors with memories
of field life.
hummingbirds and butterflies
your world until — now
summer’s end grace my desk.
as days grow short and nights cool
goddess of the rainbow.
