A flower in the market

by Keith D Allison

The elegance of the painting
a wicker horn basket
filled with fruits and vegetables
savored the taste dancing upon the eye's

The water fountains flowing
restful the melody
comfort the movement to the mind
with its gentle touch

The artists
Exquisitely, drew from her palette
with each brushstroke
brought the simplicity of beauty
to fullness of light

There in the market
the hue of green
the tone within the eyes
capturing the scent of life

manner of the flower
the curves
the sweetness of the melons
the behavior of the smile
the world was on fire


Author's Note: In the warm winds of a Italian garden will the fountains flow will Cupid dance again

Woo! "The world was on fire". PERFECT ending to this, Keith. Especially because, as I read it, the voice seemed a bit delicate, if you know what I mean. Great stuff, man.
