Crisis Garden

This is called
My Crisis Garden

and this

The Lily At Home
Changing

Dripping
Into the earth
The land into other spaces
The lava alive
Then cool
Our love and the memory
Windows

My mind ate the cheese
but I did not

  3. This was about a red color--paint sample--called Tropical Heat. Assignment was to write about the color in an ekphrastic ? way. I saw the name (on the back) after I wrote about it.

    1. Well, I dunno what the heck ekphrastic is, but it's a grand response to an interesting assignment. I'll have to get my collection of colour charts out and have a go.
