I Have Been Thinking Of Colors




In a midwinter web
Raphiolepis snags some
Morning gray and holds it
Where day may take it,
Measured out atom by atom
Into other seasons-- into
Beans, berries, sea-green pattypan--
Past and future gardens.
I do not know where
This web began.

    1. Thank you, Lady Lilith. I like to think life began as a coordinated concert from all points in the universe, but I wouldn't rule out confused lost soul.
