Wednesday Words of Poetry

Easter Day egg hunt

93 Lucy St SF, CA

The Armstrong residence

Backyard plot

Rickety steps 1, 2, 3, 4

Steps turning like a curve

5, 6, 7 back straight 8

Concrete, metal trash bins

Cans, garbage, grass

On the right an Apple tree

Worms in some of them

On the left Calla Lilies

White, I love them

My grandma did too

What I see are all around me

Long, segmented, stabilizing body

4, long, close wings

Round head, round eyes

Red ones, blue one

Louis Comfort Tiffany

loved them too

Lamps, jewelry, silver

adorned with this insect
