OCHRE DANCING

 

Porcelain
plant pot
plots
the delicious decay
of decadence
once eyed as ochre
dancing
next to dandelions
in the dawn’s dew.
Pretty
painted picture
of plants
in a porcelain pot
plays with the presence
of past
and present
under the preservation
of pressed paint.
Gold garnered
by the grace
of the sun,
amber’s earthiness
on route
to autumn’s rust,
careful creation
caught
on canvas,
a fragile folly
frozen
before
the fall.

      I’m just a dabbler, truly a jack of all trades master of none. It’s all in the experience, I guess, rather than the completion 🤭🤗

    Well I welcome an autumn poem, we’re right in the middle of it with colourful trees and autumn leaves. This afternoon I bought my first watercolour set… dreams of “dabbling” with a little colour myself! If you’re a “dabbler” my efforts will no doubt get a grade of daub-minus! 🙂 🙂
