I think (I paint)

Inspired by the phrase With a basket of roses on your arm, from the poem ‘Madonna of the Evening Flowers’ written by Amy Lowell.

This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

I think
of summer

leaves full
a fluttering of flags
deciduous trees

I think
a white cotton

and think a bonnet

lightly upon a path

a twirl
with a basket full
of roses

I watch
my thought
skip and dance

I watch those leaves

paint the bonnet
I dab
the skirt

pink the roses


paint your roses
