Portraiture: Seasons


poem-a-day-dare-tweetspeakPortraiture: Seasons

Portrait of a poet
In charcoal unframed, Spring brought
Oils in tangerine


Palette of flesh tones
Tan as brown sugar, sweet one
Summer warms our skin


Orange flame burns down
Day, a torch lit long steals night
Fireflies bear light

An End, A Middle, A Beginning – Three Haiku


An End

Traces of grey smeared
Left by Winter on the pane
She’ll be back again


A Middle

Somewhere before moons
And sunsets the noon squeezes in
Evening, I long for you


A Beginning

Mark new starts with Spring
Sit beside the pear tree with me
Earth’s ripe and ready
