Diffusing Colors





The sun peeked out for the morning,
enticing me to the river Saturday.
Bundled up, sitting with the quiet,
I noticed the sun embracing a sundog by his side.
She snuggled under his arm dressed
 in colors of violet, orange, blue and pink.
Almost, I heard her humming contentedly.

The grass, sprinkled with clinging iridescent teardrops,
 mirrored the same colors.

Color; is it bestowed?

Gladly I borrow the gift lent,
 letting it infuse me, satiate me.
Later, I will translate it, diffusing it again.
Lending it to another.
First receiving, then bestowing in turn.
 Receiving is always first.
The fullness then escapes over the rim.
It must.

Thanks so much Glynn and Laura. You can never imagine how we appreciate the sunshine here in the PNW. Enjoy yours when you have it.

Do you have sundogs in that part of the country? I haven't seen any here yet this winter ... they are such an awesome sight ...
