A Daylily bloom means that summer has truly arrived.
Their stellar display started last week in my garden
It is a show that reminds me of fireworks,
. . . explosive,
. . . thrilling
Color radiates from each sun-saturated center,
and lies delicately along curved petals
disappearing into dark shadows
. . . that accentuate the brightness even more.
Like we view fireworks,
. . . we must look quickly
. . . so as not to miss a single explosive bloom
. . . that last but a moment
. . . and is then gone, forever.
