Flower festival

Daisies, circled in a sand tray:
Perfect concentric, symmetrical necklaces
Earn the coveted first prize.

The indigenous category:
Fynbos with incongruous coastal remnants

Clustered uncomfortably in ceramic cones,
Beach-sand-lingered, holiday-scented,
Holding heads up; stoic in the highveld heat.

The sweated-out, nudging prize-giving:
Neurotic nasturtiums pant for accolade,
Then frown,
Bow down;
Judges criticise their presentation.

An indigo, facetious hydrangea arrangement
Accepts the gold medal
In the late, plant-dehydrated afternoon.
