As Few Painters Do (Nature’s Most Perfect Composition)

 these nights 
	kept vigil
as few painters do
the fantastic delusion 
	of color
	a yard high,
seldom seen through
	comprehended
No—nor can be
after the newborn
	light

Nature’s Most Perfect Composition

 nature’s most
	perfect
	composition
…a garden
that colorful old proverb
	laid away in white
For here in all its forms
are Spun from the fabrics 
	of rose leaves
	creations
to fashion the world in summer
delightful in its 
	strands

An observation: whenever I make more than one (usually no more than two) poetry collages in a day, I tend to treat them as subtexts of one another. Even if that wasn’t my initial intent. And even if the connection between texts is only an intuitive one. I still feel as if they’re somehow in dialogue. Anyway, the two above were completed today. They’re also available in my Etsy shop.
