Blue Leaves & Bugs
I am entangled in a blue-black-purple mesh
of unpredictability. I reach for vulnerable
pink fragments that float. They open me
to bold, orange, yellow, joy.
I become alive again.
Free, uncaught, resolved to reach the light.
It has been there in the corner of my eye,
taunting, testing, inviting me
to shed this web. The filigree feels warm,
comfortable, protected, quiet.

Out on a limb
I navigate the shadows,
taupe grey, umber, ash.
I realize who I am,
embrace the light.
timberwolf, platinum, boto.
Joy emerges from the sadness.
Increasingly it finds me
as I let go of the anger
and the darkness.
I am free.

I remember a moment, a time,
a delicate flower, you.
A foundation of green
realizes this painting.
In my dream, the blush of color
reminds me of the summer
at the beginning of our life together.
Sensations of blue materialize on porcelain.
Once imagined, now fully present
they leave a legacy of love.
Inspired by The Peonies. Artist: Alan Thomas
Life forming images in my mind,
grounded green leaves.
These are real to me,
their true essence intact.
Could it be that it's more lovely
unformed, a feeling, an energy,
in that state between sleep
