Lucifer, the foxglove,
ignores the sun.
Looks down upon
the souls he’s won.

    • Thanks Jingle. Please read more about my battles with foxglove in my story, Taking A Slug.
      Despite it’s play at seeming demure by turning it’s delicate blossom bells away from the sun, it’s likely the most toxic plant in my garden. That gave me the idea of a beautiful Lucifer turning his face from God while gathering his harvest of poisoned souls. Of course, being a hard-wired Catholic, I couldn’t let the Devil have more than four lines (nor can I give the current pope more than two lines–oy vey!).
