Aquamarine

Written by: Alan Reed

In aquamarine ran off my warmth traversing 
mild meadows with swallows of ash 
past the pink sunset 

Three cherry cardinals swooped past partly pleased 
the brook trickled near 

Evading were than icon imaginings 
the following fawns 
the spotted taupe-hazel fawn 

Three taupe robins at a white well 
The magic cello hummed earlier 

Sword at side passed over my warmth 
through the falling cascades 
off on the pink sunset 

Three cherry cardinals swooped past partly pleased 
The level prairie sat below 

Supple were they sandaled sand 
The sheer slim fawns 
The discomfited shuffled fawns 

Three graceless mothers in the green dell 
The ravenous barb earlier crooned 

Curtsy at waist my warmth traversing 
Casing the waterfall behind 
Off in the pink sunset 

Three cherry cardinals swooped past partly pleased 
The vertical crests sat above 

Brighter be they than tranquil birth 
The sheer slim fawns 
The taller edgy fawns 

Three higher vicars at the mild meadow 
The adept huntsman 
Ran below 

In aquamarine ran off my warmth traversing 
mild meadows with swallows of ash 
past the pink sunset 

Three cherry cardinals
