Sunflower!

Just another badly needed splash of color. The weather (already grey and sullen) has turned bitterly cold and windy, which is unusual for this time of year. At least the sun climbs higher in the sky day by day and quickly lays waste to the high dirty snowbanks by the side of the road.

Look for awhile at the China Cat Sunflower
proud-walking jingle in the midnight sun
Copper-dome Bodhi drip a silver kimono
like a crazy-quilt stargown
through a dream night wind

Krazy Kat peeking through a lace bandana
like a one-eyed Cheshire
like a diamond-eye Jack
A leaf of all colors plays
a golden string fiddle
to a double-e waterfall over my back

Comic book colors on a violin river
crying Leonardo words
from out a silk trombone
I rang a silent bell
beneath a shower of pearls
in the eagle wing palace
of the Queen Chinee
