Chromatics

 


December 4, 1986


Each defined,
Yet undefined,
By the multichrome
Maelstrom,


They swirl and tumble -
Coalesce
Into a brilliant mass -
Then scatter,


Swirl and rise,
Then dip again
To settle a moment
In vivid mosaic.


Rise and swirl -
Scattered wide
On a frigid gale -
The maelstrom.


For Patty - does this suit you, my willful, changeable sister? - with love.
