FLECKS OF DEW

5-19-00





Mist grey on the Scotch broom
grey-green leaves
but more:
five water-green
grey-green drops
of dew in the central channel

grey and scattered
about on the steeply sloping
sides of the leaves, dozens of tinier dots
of dew on
breath-fine hairs

creating mist-grey
mystical-grey haze
penumbra
diaphanous
halos of heaven
unearthly

and over there
clover leaves
fleur-de-lis of the purple crowns
-- where the black dog rolled --
edged in finer, tinier crystal drops
each dot beaming the universe
of grey sky
grey sun
the transparency of being
grey
in the grey morning mist.
