Pink: A Haiku
A surge of sunlight
Shocks through stem and thistle hairs.
A punk pink hairdo.
~ Jane Yolen,
Color Me a Rhyme
I love this poem and the image of a thistle with a punk hairdo! I had never connected the two before reading Yolen's haiku sometime last year, but now that's the the first thing that comes to mind whenever I see a thistle in bloom....
