Fay Slimm.






Contoured, white-based, shyly secreted
colour glides imperceptibly 
as light mutates.

It fluctuates sways and flickers, unseen
until viewed, ether-screened
or split by rays.

Dancing in filtered hues dye materializes,
clarifies shimmering change 
to monotone sight.

Powered with red, curried in carmine rose
pink rides alongside
beautifully ripening aquamarine, streaks
of gold tinge yellow's eye.

Lavender superimposes itself on tangerine,
coppery ginger  
sheens spicy glamour into blue-indigo and 
becomes plum, meeting in azure 
as amalgaming  spectrum.


Releasing time to observe alchemy's live
unfurling in sky-scape or bubbles
of rain creates surprises of shade-shape
to humanity's black-and-white life.


Translucent stain cuts thru' pastel's pale
edge to vibrate awe
at dawn's prism of reflective mystique 
and as movement tints auras 
psychic invasion lights selective beauty       
with chromatic resonance.
to those who by perception see change.

      beautifully painted dear Fay!
      whether it be dawn, sunset, or that rare wonder of rainbow
      you captured the cadence of our heart's strings
      while witnessing, this rare gleaned gifts
      to nature's rays of kaleidoscopic magnificence..
      (reading you nature poetry makes me
      want to start planning a nomadic holiday, lol)
