dia de las madres: for Tina


mauve's green

green's mauve

3 falls:

from tyranny,

from memory,

from captivity,

into ardent fools


into coffee'd pools


alizarin crimson rounding the heart

of Gwyneth's plume,

gold in the sun-flecked corners

songold / marrygold

hazy sunflowers in hazy mist

sea line woman,

ocean bloom'd

spun through riverrun heron's blue

castaway chillun

gathered into

the dark


of Yemaya's kiss:

carnelian babies,

sapphire blissed.

Love the picture, love the poem. Tina is one lucky lady... (and you and Walden are lucky, too).

Hope you all have a blessed, happy mother's day!

Thank you, Dee. A bit of a tough poem to make, since I was "writing" it on my hike down the Tobin Trail. I had to memorize it, and I'm outta practice.

I would be in big trouble. I have the memory of a field mouse. :) I remember pieces of things I think of when I am walking and write those pieces down as soon as I get home so they don't get lost in the muck and mire and gray matter.

You would likely surprise yourself, Dee, since necessity is the mother of invention (and Zappa, of course). Six miles of lines beginning to fill up your head gives you plenty of time for repetitions.

I have a feeling Tina had a great Mother's Day :)

DM: She did: she gave the sermon at church, and later led a ceremony honoring all the women in the church. It was all quite beautiful.
