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
like
a fluttering of flags
adorn
deciduous trees

I think
a white cotton
dress

and think a bonnet
too

barefoot
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

you

paint your roses
too
