Stained

Fragile face stained
By pink of mirth
Turns listless grey
At the very thought
Of terribly indulged
Broadband
Girth

Incorrigible
Spirit’s
Effervescence
Lifts black doldrums
Upon recall
Of sore red heart’s
Salving
After feasting
On expertly
Flambéed
stained glass
Windows in places
Of worship, grandpa’s
Rambling home

Advancing in years
Now am given
to retrace steps
Reliving recalled
Oasis’
In times
Past

Chameleonic
Shades stain
At emotion’s
Ebb and flow
I hang on to the
Orange marmalade
Of joy
Spreading
Life’s daily
rationed
daubs
sliced
