True Colors

Water Study, Digital Art by Richard Reeve

I’ve known a few Cindys,’

and listened to one

on the radio

whose courage

has guided me

these last few months,

simply to show up,

and let the colors drain,

even when the vein

is collapsed, and vibrant reds

seem like disappointing browns.

  1. Two thoughts followed reading your words. My taking patient’s blood from veins that proved unwilling. That thought quickly dropped. And then go look at some YouTube uploads of Cyndi Lauper, Kirsty MacColl, Alanis Morrisette, and similar. You’ve set my listening to music to paint to list for the day. Another great synergy of imagery and well thought out linking prose from you. Cheers.
