New Pilgrim poem

In whack

Bevy, plethora, array, row --
pattern, barely controlled,
like sexy solar panels, a long line, 
each laid back, eager to excite
the grid, hot to go. Or, 
mountain spring, simpatico, 
pent up, pooled, ready to flow. 
Downstream, a lithe wildflower,
in whack, about to discover
she has been sighing of thirst.
