With every brush stroke
his balsam disappears,
replaced with misty rose
and cranberry ice.
The yin and yang of this room
offends my anguished heart:
"Opposites don't always complement,
don't always strengthen" it weeps.
I blot the past with heavy coats;
as fumes intoxicate and numb
protecting me, a bit
as I try to recover from
this fall after the rise.

This is for Magpie Tales #78. Try it... where does your mind go with the above image. It doesn't have to be poetry - it can be a short "vignette". At least be sure to check out some of the nearly 100 entries that will be there by this Sunday. Thanks to the Benjamin Moore fan deck, I learned that balsam green is opposite many beautiful pinks!
