THE COLORS OF EVENING

THE COLORS OF EVENING


Playing canasta with family and a shiny new deck of cards,
Kings, queens, the beautiful blackness of the spades.
While outside, through the window, everywhere 
Snow is falling in an uninterrupted blanket over the evening
And the land is silenced. 
Near the window my daughter’s hair in pony tail  
Reveals  the smooth curve of her cheek bones
As, from memory, she paints in delicate strokes 
Spring marguerites in the garden, quietly saying hello
With their frivolous white-fingered waves
And their sunny yellow smiles.
