Jennifer Lagier- Poem & Photo

Reddened aloes cluster
in tenacious colonies,
protrude from wizened stalks
along ocean bluff.
Rosette tentacles cleave
to dry chaff of previous incarnations,
thrive among broken granite,
rampant hottentot fig.
Like vivid octopi,
they cling above placid bay,
starfish swirls, blushing
tumbleweed knots.

In between communing with forest and tidepools, Jennifer Lagier, moonlights as a groupie for snakes, dead and alive.

  1. Perfection. A classic picture/text combo.
