The Blooming





Trace my rhythms

Patterning unknowns

On to the chalk path chase,

Drawing forms, colours blurred

Outline my chosen name to hunt

For sparks, brittle blooms still nourish bees,


Transparent petals

Offer nectar to the wings,

Stalks direct the globe.

The words to use synonyms for were: Follow & Lead
