post 87:Yellow and Blue Painting, Raw and Clumsy Poem, Brand New Morning, Maine Beauty

by Carol Bass


This painting now is raw and clumsy
uncertain blue and yellow whoop-de-do lines
later, maybe shadows down below
of soft raspberry sprays, puffs of scent
from the bee balm
floating in and out
and other colors yet not surfaced
to the edges of the mind
Brand new mornings are like this
the pain is precise
like a razor cutting
The precious beauty
is a quiet dive into
sparkling diamonds of water.
