Poet’s Corner – LOVE
I painted a picture once called love,
All in pastels and transparencies
and planned shapes abstracted and arranged from edge to edge,
Reminding me of all things pleasant
like the sounds of swans flying before they appear
And turtle dove’s echoes in the morning quiet.
The music of colors and lines of notes remind me
Of my table set for a canvas perfectly aligned
Like the stars and planets.
And how greens melts into cyan and yellows ignite.
Phrases of the imagination
Like the coolness of the evening
Slow down the rhythms to all and everything.
