amazed

photoart & poem - woodland rhododendrons
photoart & poem – ©2018 Laura Granby

After the opening finesse of foliage
neat segregations of bush and shrub
blur in jaunty slap-dash lines
rhododendron contenders juggle for limelight
an audacious muddle of fragrance and pigment
the vulgar blending with vivacious
along wooded paths in May
I lose my way, amazed

A fuddle of forty-four words for De’s quadrille prompt: Muddle up that Muse

    • a woodland path I took last May and impressions of the muddle are everlastingly imprinted – especially perhaps for us gardening folk!

  4. Oh yes…..the muddle of plants and flowers and trees within a “natural place.” The colors assault you in their beauty! Washington DC is ablaze in azaleas accompanied by gentle pale pink cherry blossoms! 🙂

    Yes Laura, they may just capture our attention in their own offending ways!
