bare hands feed flames
then brush nose—smoke fills mind
burn widens

Writing this poem reminded me that extremely high UV levels are burning plants, including in my backyard. You can find out more here: http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/?s=ozone.

 

mullein flower

I’ve dismissed

wild flower
on tall stalk
today
passed one
at nose height—
only other place
I’ve found
such thick syrup scent
would be
jasmine oil

from India
