                                          Smeared summer blue skylight
                                              dabbed and spackled white
                                                over drab green meadows
                                               where clashing floral pedals
                                                 seemed like odd speckles
                                     in an old oil stained painting unframed
                        Its now my perception now these odd impressions
                                                  were clever color alternations
                                        an odd rendition of gentle carnations
                                              bled dye the shade of pink pastel 
                                                  during morning's rain spell
                             Displayed in an odd shaped imported pastel vase
                                       until winter's frost and winter withered
                                                its pedals lost yet remembered 
                               after several seasons time the stems bled lime
                                                            as chlorophyll spilled 
                                                              its pedals decayed 
                                             until no flower remained displayed
