Cosmic starfllowers, basking in morning’s glory,
milk mother burgeoning with sweetness and beauty.
Cosmos, daylily, morning glory, milkweed,
strawflowers, oregano, spirea, and lady’s thumb come
together to give her life.
Twins, twinning, twining.
Sun and Moon in Gemini.
Brother Sister Stories.
Yin and Yang.
Tanya and Vanya.
Hansel and Gransel.
When two come together intertwined, soular union.
They bounce off one another, interplay with geranium, fleabane,
daylily, spirea, tansy, lovage, and motherwort.
Summer forest spirits playing,
listening to what the heat is saying,

Shaped with daylilies, fleabane, milkweed,
motherwort, lovage, tansy, and geranium.

Queen Anne’s Lace, and grasses.
Zinnias, goldenrod, milkweed leaves, tansy, red clover leaves, asparagus ferns, Queen Anne’s Lace, and jewelweed pop brightly with zing in this tableau.
Milkweed leaves, pokeberry, Queen Anne’s Lace,
zinnias, cleome, red clover leaves,

Moon dancing with Luna.

A flirtation with sumac and spirea leaves,
grape, geranium, daisy fleabane,
narcissus, and rhododendron.
Moonboat floats with three dancers celebrating Luna by starlight.
