Dainty

Dainty (Louis Comfort Tiffany) 3/23

Lead thick drips from tangled green wisteria
purple flowing grape-like and reaching
Blossoms droop the sky and mask the clouds calmly

Through the canopy light is bruised orange
and eggplant beet-sprout bleeding brown
Falling magnolia cast a tangle of hair on the floor

Everything so crystal blue shifted
Sun-set over water and a final green flash
Sound of fire down Long Island of reeds fluting
