July 14

Dipsacus fullonum

_______________________________________

With a purple tutu

Covering those sharp spines

Simultaneously

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
