Lines and angles,
Shadow tangles
Plus a touch of dissection.
Of light from many directions.


The blue of lapis lazuli on a good friend's window-sill,
Waiting until the sun comes beaming through.
Waiting to form deep shadows on the fruit baskets below,
Adding the subtle mystery of blue.
This is the home of travelers to all parts of the earth;
In native markets they were pleased to buy
Many a quaint memento to bring home and enjoy.
And here we see their lapis lazuli.

I love the array of glassware on the window-sill, Brenda. That is such anb outstanding shade of blue. I now have Yeats on my brain. said...

Nice reflections RR & perfect descriptions as well!
