Feather Reedgrass

Ornamental grass,
how your liveliness surpass
the meadow of your dwelling;
gathered together, lofty and slender,
like a crowd of anorexic glamour girls
with the latest hair-do that sways in a breeze;
you stand tall, reaching,
as though you wish to paint on heaven’s canvas
with your brush of downy heads.
