Symon Jory Stevens-Guille

ODE TO A GARDEN ECHO
Struck flint flails; flutters of rouge reef tremble
in plume pillows;
sun-gauzed grapes, bevy-burst brail erupting
as globic grails.
Breeze deflates breath through the fern-born fifes, as
buds brim with petal pause, bloombasting peels
of a sun swooned
pollen, lung puffed
from tongue torrents, sap sputtering.
