crimson rosella





crimson rosella
sun’s shock and shimmer
like a swift air brush
on its fluted tassel

winged pimpernel of the bush
zips past
te deum ringing for soulmates
engaged to ignite eros

sharp streak into the day
flash of chilli-red cuts the air
tosses high on a stringy-bark

scarlet beauty in midnight blue
its ruffle
spins to a blur
