A window in a flower

A window in a flower

Choose a blue name
Paint a window in a flower
Dance with men with antlers
Soak in the warm waters of love’s embrace

I went all the way to the coast
But it wasn’t far enough
And so I had to go further

I went to the forest
I brought home a rock, a flower
And a rusted old logger’s gas can

Hummingbirds come and go
The pond’s edge jumps with frogs everywhere
Wind-blown sand covers a swimsuit left at a beach

Copper elephants and white monkeys
Rich colors clutter clash resound
Lush texture layers invite

I play and walk in the collage of birdsong, flowers and acrylics
Art enchants
