A RED HORSE Marc and Bella beg for blessings the portrait of a marriage candlelight and the crimson cover rides overhead like a holy arch a handstand, like the artist’s euphoria, balances on the back of the red horse dark days of Russia play in the fields below a suspended violin wisps of forlorn clouds blue with happiness Marc embraces his bride Bella holds her fan on earth but a songsheet in heaven’s clouds one bare foot upon the backside of the reddened horse her lips round with soothing sound Marc’s protection above her playing their wedding song fantasy over rooftop an arching crescent moon “head over heels” in love 8/16/2017
