Inspired by painting, "Northern Lake" by Tom Thomsonuser img

Mediums of Winter parse translucent runes on the tines of sloping firs basking like mallards in March's brusk sunshine. Arctic oracles echo on the lake's hard sapphire with pearl crests punctuating Spring's arrival while cat tails exclaim nascent umber banks. As teals float in a tarot of amulets tanagers preen, imbuing remnant frost with scarlet omens.

You have such a way with unique imagery, Dale. I wish I had more of that!! I use imagery but I can't always make it sound super original the way you do! Lovely poem.
