Artichoke

Artichokes on the riverbank
Resplendent, growing tall
With majestic purple crowns
behind the floodplain wall

Their beauty caught me by surprise
and I just had to pause a while
So wonderful their stature
I could not resist a smile

I posted several pictures
on my social media sites
And someone said they’d eaten theirs
in several welcome bites

But I prefer to look at them
and behold their beauty there
Captured in these few short words
which I’m very pleased to share
