The Meltdown

Poem By Debora Short

You saw her once
In colorless kimonos
And again
In agricultural greens
But did you really ever understand her?

Sauntering
Into that tiny crevice
Prismatic
Rainbows once
Glowed pristinely in the horizon

All
Perceived colors
Red, yellow, orange
Violet, blue, and green
Arc-ed ethereally

A spectrum
Where long waves
To the right
Serenade and sooth
Harried souls

To left
Rapidly cast
Short waves
Marking forces
Of ancient darkness

In time and space
She walks
Her shadows
Exist concretely in history
Chameleons’ very energy

You saw her once
In colorless kimonos
And again
In agricultural greens
But did you really ever understand her?

- Curling Respires

Wispy calligraphy draws me into
The wintered blue that eyes and so lightly

Veils her shoulders in fine–twigged taupe lace

Sands of time, sands of home, and sands of love
Sing such lovely songs to my well traveled

Sandy toes tickled warm Caribbean

Facing due east, Conch shells line the porch rails
As if they were amulets guarding my soul
