Sharon Dolin: Serious Pink

Words, words, words that keep coming back to me, that I keep returning to...

... words like butterflies en pointe over flowers in an endless meadow...

By Sharon Dolin, in her collection Serious Pink:Ekphrastic Poems:

"Let spectacled be speckled
and strips become tipples of stripes."

{from the poem "Day Dreams"}

"Robin's eggs, unhatched, fly up
orange drowns tongue blue"

{from "Writing Painting: A Ghazal"-- with a score-mark through "Painting," which the clumsy lobster cannot do on this computer}
