Like tea tree,
your essence restores
my prickly
bottlebrush
heart, soothes inflammation, turns
soft what was jagged.

"Bee In Bottlebrush" by Jaime Clark

Kerry's weekend challenge to the Real Toads is to be inspired by the macro-photography of her talented daughter, Jaime Clark, to write a shadorma. Jaime's photos show off in intricate detail the flora of South Africa, where she lives; these fantastical blooms certainly can't be found in my neighborhood. Please do click through to take a look. Beautiful!
