the very top of August

South Seattle Community College Arboretum, water lilies by Susan K. Millerthe Sun had gone
up the stairs
to the very top
of August,
and then came
plunging down
with a soft violence

. . . . . . . .

Today's erasure poem was excavated from the OED word of the day 'mushroom' (the verb).

Dear Susan,
Lovely work! Especially, colors. Thank you, I did not know a word, "mushroom" has a noun.
Kind regards,

Thanks, Sadami. The OED continues to remind me of the many surprising nooks and crannies of the English language!
