Bees brave summer rain

for this hedgerow happening:

a wild rose opens.

on the dark pond’s tense surface:

light glimpsed within light.

Summer dies slowly.

The hedgerow wears mourning jewels:

ripe elderberries.

black opal iridescence:

the fly’s true colours.

She flirts and dances;

alighting briefly, she wreaks

delayed destruction.

as gift. Scent of green and red.

Soaked geraniums.

A hook-tooth protrudes.

A lupine snarl. My dog, rapt

the question mark curves
