old skirt 2017

.

Skirt of many long colors

sewn in gathers

and tiers

.

brushing my ankles

with playful seams

cutting through the design

.

of mismatched patterns

wearing thin

after all these years

.

washing on delicate

hanging to dry

one more time.

In his mind, a prism –

another in his heart.

Fans of colors

feather-spread,

one light, two wings

in flight.

At first I lived in black and white,

the nights were dark, the days were light

and in between there was a grey

that hardly changed from day to day.

 .

Laughter sprang from shallow seas,

leafing elms 3-8-2012

my tears were trivialities.

I walked on by and couldn’t bear

the colors burning everywhere.

 .

But then one spring the blue-bells tolled

of leaves in green and suns in gold,

of hearts that pulsate ripe and red,

love burst in rainbows ‘bout my head!

Polish smooth

your cutting rocks

my jagged stones

and at dawn

we’ll find each other

garnished

in the fan dance

of prisms.

Colors


Polish clean

your cutting rocks,

my jagged stones

and see at sunrise

prisms.
