“There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who, with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into sun.” ~Pablo Picasso

in these brrr chilly times
everything brings summer’s
cheery suns to mind

fried eggs sunny sides
up on skillet bring egg
yolk suns to mind

stir frying veggies
is when globs of turmeric
wink at startled eyes

oranges, yellows
colors vermilion
shades of ochre

all crane necks
eyeballing frostbitten
sorry me and scorn

snuggling inside
a down jacket indoors
is not an option

Trussed, fully layered
like a robust onion
I exist to don, peel, don

its well on nigh time
to grab a mile long pole
and tickle sky’s gloom

extract amiable weather
suns and moons and stars
from invisible galaxies
~
reaper by Van Gogh
