The Flame

Sunlight shines within the folds
your red and orange hues display
your brush upon the canvas spoke
of beauty words could not relay

Lost within this burning flame
I'm wittiness to the joy you saw
the beauty of your fire etched
within this heart now left in awe




Inspired by Brian Strand's Picture Poem contest

Red Canna   1923   Georgia O'Keeffe

"I found that I could say things with color and shapes that I
couldn't say in any other way - things that I had no words for."  Georgia O'Keeffe
