    Painting the Cherry Tree

    The artist works.

    His brush dips
    The pale pinks and blues
    Soft as babies' clothing,
    Then drifts
    Lazily
    Like a horse's dragging tail
    To its waiting canvas.

    Butterfly
    Tissue paper wings
    She whispers
    With perfumed
    Breath, the secrets of her world
    And what lies beyond.

    We sat in silence
    Watching the leaves fall
    And the gentle grace
    Of their quiet descent
    Moved her to tears

    They fell like rain
    And whispered in the air
    And kissed the earth
    With a lady's...

    She grew out her bangs
    To cover her eyes,
    So lovely once,
    Now scarred.

    Sitting by her bedside
    I looked at her
    She looked at me
    With eyes like glass
    And I saw myself
    Reflected back at me
    In those twin mirrors
    That once held souls
    And I realized
    I was alone

    Felt her breath
    Soft and warm

    And sweet as

    how jealous must be the night
    for only can she echo the day

    like a shadow, trailing limp
    behind the sun
    chained to its ankles
    dragged along

    i hear her laughing
    but it is hollow

    Stormy-eyed girl
    Who cries when it rains
    And shudders at the
    Thunder

    Yet when the morning dew
    Dances with early
    Morning sunlight
    And kisses her toes
    She laughs

    Muse of artists' painted stroke
