A Color of Dawn

Soft widowed tendrils flame to ash,
Simple draped curtains found to be made of clay;
Famed cat-shells blamed as rash,
The smell of spring is out today.

Windows creek in the dawn of day,
While fresh plants ground-it out and away.
Silly carpet games I found-by a brook
In the world of May. Fair canvassed
Colors swim off
                                   And away.

In a season called “silence” a little ill-logic can stir;
I sometimes grow weary of things that don’t occur.
Then again, I never expected anything;
I didn’t manipulate the environment with synchronicity.


Sometimes my shadow may get to me, 
Then I turn to see it hide behind reality.
Hung like fish hooked steel; though copper wire 
Seemed so innocent. A color of dawn
Painted my day, but it tends 
                To run off
                                         And away.
