White Screen


the last scarlet leaf drops
barren limbs yield
to malaria of psyche
join in Demeter's grief

immobile on the
white screen of theater
until Persephone returns
incalescence of spring green

Beautiful. Simply beautiful. 'barren limbs yield
to malaria of psyche' is perhaps my favorite. And, your watercolor is very fitting. Keep up the good work.

Have a nice evening.

That's a resourceful utilisation of the appointed words. Quite a challenge.

You are good!
My goodness, your poetry and your imagination just wow me! Your watercolors always bring me right in too. I also am already looking towards spring. Winter can be so long.

You did a great job with the five words! I like the references to mythology and the seasons. I'm impressed with how you incorportated the words in such a fresh way. They fit naturally where you used them.
