Wildflowers here

For scything blue, it's in June
you'd need to walk with me here —
for bridling pink to be by your side,
for droves of yellows to appear.
Come mid-July, they'll be gone,
and that spot further on
with intricate crowns of purple on mountainous stalks —
I'd count on them being back next year — in June, not before —
but to whom are they really in thrall, after all?

Composed mostly whilst walking along Jonsvannsveien/Engelsåsveien/Nyjordveien on the evening of the 22nd of June 2022, with some editing on the 23rd and 24th.
