Green like a piece
of powdery mint gum
oozes into a streak of cornflower blue.
Gauzy wisps of white clouds
weave finger trails in the variegated sky.
A dusky lavender bleeds
into a mauve that flirts with brown,
and a paradise pink chases
the jubilation of tropical orange.
The car loops along a diamond sparkle river
and, like a black-robed judge,
the bulbous moon arrives out of
a jagged, towering mountainside.
Burnt yellow from the fading sun,
the mammoth orb reigns over silver whispers.
