Poem for Spring

xx_148_Vernal_Tullio_2012

dressing you
with my eyes

I’ve been
watching you very closely

for more than
a month.

You’re always
up before me.

In fact, as
far as I know,

You’re always
up.

You’re there

when I awake

making
yourself more lovely

right in
front of me.

You do it so
slowly.

I can’t stare
away.

New tones of
green

cover your
limbs.

Your body
disappears

like the
landforms

behind a
peacock’s tail.

Then suddenly
you’re adorning yourself

with cherry,
lilac, and forsythia.

I can hardly
bear

these
differences between us.

You are the
most beautiful thing.

Even I can
see that.

    This image caught my eye because not only is the foreground (the flowers) peaceful to look at but the background is relaxing also. I like the way you use descriptions that most men would use for women to describe the flowers. I could almost imagine a women in the middle of all those flowers dressing herself for her day. She is getting ready to make breakfast as she looks out the kitchen window into the field of flowers that are just flowing in the breeze. This is demonstrated in the background. The way the circles seem to flow across the screen like a summer breeze.

    Cherry, yellow, brown and black are the polka dots, they set a tone for the very back.
    With Cherry Lilacs flourishing the scene, they even match the polka dots in between.
    Yellow Forsythia brighten the scene , that helps when there is no green. So cherry, yellow, brown and black keep setting the tone for the very back
