National Poetry Month- Day 5: I challenge you to spend some time looking at the names of heirloom plants, and write a poem that takes its inspiration from, or incorporates the name of, one or more of these garden rarities.
silken ribbons leave legacy of escaped gasps, illicit sighs, forbidden touch
the binding marks, a guarded trophy never put on display.
beneath complaints of business demands, desire begins
lipstick stained collars
and the bachelor’s button.
