    Mint countertops were a sign of the times;
    not that ours were - I don't remember
    Peppermint in the garden; strawberries
    and buttercups; a tall foxglove and ferns
    One neighbor had a nuke shelter built; duck
    and cover drills at Crown Hill school paled the
    innocent light of impressible youth
    An escape through the stinging nettles down
    to the shore helped shape an identity
    impervious to the daily fallout

    Buttercup Yellow

    Itís not the yellow that helps gold
    Sparkle to delight.
    Itís frailer, lovely to behold,
    A flower, living, bright.

    Purple

    Deeper than the sky’s pure blue,
    Purer than a love come true
    Purple lights an aura bright
    Where young and old are ever new.


    Next: sky blue

    The Sky; a Pool of Blue


    I reached for the sky into a pool of blue
    The ripples from my finger tips did produce
    a certain concentric synchronicity -
    bringing all my earthly sorrows into view

    I bowed my head in offering up a prayer;
    while the heavens wept with me from clouds which did
    appear - I then beheld Him, the Lamb of God,
    who placed my burden into His loving care

    Silver

    Stones and cordwood form two lines,
    Leaves fall covering the ground.
    Silvery silence chills the air.
    Nothingís lost that need be found.

    Lost and Found

    Lost again
    in a maze of emotion
    a field of
    dried corn stalk pale yellow walls
    surrounds me
    beseeching
    arms outstretched to the heavens
    rather than
    succumb to the moment I
    fly away

    Cornflower Blue

    Deeply vivid, baby blue,
    Maid of honorís gown--
    When a smile encircles you
    I canít wear a frown.

    Black


    Periphery's identity caresses, cat like purring.
    Spine twirl of saxophone notes dim lit
    rise slip to from shape form impression.

    Beware!

    Well known shadow's sole consumption
    the consummate seductress' contrast creation
    press, shift, pulled inward in tension


    Next, Mauve
