Day 28 Color Poem

Out Back

clouds slug it out with sky, spread
 their bruised and purpled edges

across the too cold amethyst morning, lilac

light settles

         round the iris bed, violet damp

seeps into the periwinkling crabgrass

while chickweed shimmers forth

from Buddha’s contented 

composting lap
