|"Action/Thriller" is it? Mmmm Hmmm... of course, the poet is, indeed, everywhere! in this completely original, creative (dare I say) ditty.
Compact quartets that burst and bloom... even the flowers were giggling. To say I love this one would be a gross understatement... so, rather than go for other expressions I'll just say it louder: I LOVE THIS ONE, ROGER!!! (grin) You are, beyond most, a master metaphor-er. katy xoxox

|Down here in Baptist land tawdry is normal. Nice tribute to a beautiful, though short lived, flower.

|Well! I dare say the petunias and the wild onion, never mind poor little daisy, are just agast at the tart you have introduced in their garden. Of course, the elephant ears and the cacti are already sharpening their best seducing lines.|

|EXCELLENT write. A garden won't be a garden without something wild in it. Otherwsie the garden would be so boring. Great idea to plant the Hibiscus to bright up your garden.
