"Good Morning, World!"

Month: December, 2018

Colour Fast

Eye am off

The Silver & Steel Blue

of Dr Blair’s hair

& Eyes

Eye am on

to the riches of russet

ruby chestnut, warmth

in that telling array of red

& brown

to be found now brimming my heart

& Eye have chosen a dress

of the deepest luminosity

in that sacred range

to wear on the night of my taking

Hitting On My Dream

The man of my dream

Has hair the colour

Of this month’s roadside

Tree stalks and shrubbery

Sandy cinnamon red

Driven through

In afternoon sun

As I set out to find him:

The engineer for my art

My giant Canadian maple leaf
