Eye For Colour - Poem by Heather Doyle

juicy citrus smiles in morning
lustfully nuzzling sweet banana
and too tart plum
soft wrinkled sunshine
draped over landscape
horizons of collarbone
and eager knees
visualize electric spark of ignition
pretend dull sedan is neon
top down racer
along this brick road
canaries are chanting
sunflowers divulge
exquisite secrets

flash remembrance
last spring
daffodil dried beside dandelion wild
now anointed with shimmering dust
hard symbolic gold
strategically placed
catches light
some time ago

cheerful kitchen greets me
ecstatic cloud of curry
turmeric erupts from
capable golden tanned hands
amber jewel eyes
scan sadistic words
like sear and pinch
this is voyeurism
to watch I wash
copper bottom pot
insides rejoice in the
slippery lemon scent

bare full bellies
to those last
warm rays of day
carelessly crush dandelions
contemplate forgiveness
and the afterlife of flowers
