Photograph‘Purple Oxalis Plant’ by Julia Geaney-Moore The Society June 26, 2017 Beauty, Culture, Poetry 2 Comments When dusk settles, the oxalis Stands taller and sweeter, As if to say that all of this Is just Nature’s theater, The butterfly-shaped purple leaves Are an actor’s costume, Which fans out in royal sheaves And is soaked in perfume.
