This week it is Poet’s Choice for Colleen Chesebro Tanka Tuesday Poetry No 176 – Poet’s Choice and I have written a double etheree in homage to an often unwelcome visitor to our gardens.
Double Etheree – Persecution in the Garden
stirs with life
in vibrant displays
like an artist’s palette.
Domestic and wild alike
they absorb the sunlight and air.
There is no measure of their status
until there is human intervention.
The pretty milkweed is an example
nurturer of the caterpillar
and adult monarch butterfly.
It also attracts the bees
that care not it is wild.
Be as discerning
as these creatures
