|Composite Eglantines, Celandines, Larkspurs|
of efflorescent pink and yellow-green;
inspired by painted thoughts, pale eglantine
ideas wind through myths and madrigals.
Rosettes of stories start to twist and curl
where colors shine like sunlit celandines.
Then legends filled with plotted serpentines
take shape, replace and populate my world.
In rainbow tinted songs I'll juxtapose
new poems where my sunlit histories
will soften dark adumbral older lines.
I'll wash away the blackened martyr's clothes
once stained by false and shameful mysteries.
With larkspur's hymns I'll break the paradigm.
