O'Keeffe's Canvas ~ #NaPoWriMo2021 ~ Day 30

Petals lace the sky

with pink drawing

sunlight closer to the heart.


Jealous winter pounds its chest

to rally icy clouds to storm the horizon,

but songbirds drown its tantrum

with the melody of Spring.


In a frosted huff winter retreats

to its tomb of dry leaves leaving spring

to transform the ashy cheek of earth into

bold brushstrokes of O’Keeffe.
