Colors for Beatrice

various gel ink pens on paper

Colors for Beatrice

frolic surrounding transparent bubbles of green
and pink splashes of sun kissed trellis
of chants and cheer
curtains of whirls and swirls of chocolate
strawberry sweet smelling mallows by the fire
with breaths of flowers
soft covered streets in yellow drawn lines
you hold her hand gently pressed with peace
wrapped around your heart
with a quiet laughter
amplified with the purple wind
she is His gift for us that still remains
she is the universe’s blessing for us
in dim footing
embrace for all time pureness of her gaze
her smile in red stamped frailty
engraved for all moment
she watches over us
orange clouds above blue tides
and as we sleep she holds us by
pureness of heart her angelic smile
we wait
till we see forever in her eyes
