Pink: A Haiku

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....
