Point and click if you must,
apertured, cross-process capture,
naïve, fractured pixel weave.

Filter out chalybeous hue,
swift remove creeping gentian,
sift periwinkle powder blues.

Let alizarin bleed through shades
of melancholic monsoon madder,
choleric carmine, sliced away.

Leave only mellow ash blonde blush
lemon chiffon, naples yellow,
soft papaya, stil de grain.

Sundrench me in saffron timbre,
lutescent vignette, haloed amber,
incandescent freeze-framed hush.

  1. This reads with freshness and wisdom, which in itself is quite a capture. Beautiful progression – incremental – every option, every step felt.
