July 14

Dipsacus fullonum


With a purple tutu

Covering those sharp spines


Attracting, repelling

Roadside weed, food for bees


Glistens with summer dew

Used to comb wool so fine

Grows spontaneously

Endlessly compelling

Now here from overseas


Armored dangerously

Growing and excelling


(A Rimas Dissolutas Poem)
