From My Window
From my window I see the canvas on the easel
ready for the artist to spread her vibrant hues throughout
the day, bringing life to the gray-dawned morning
and color to the lightly sketched scene that sprawls before me.
Throughout the morning she works on the greens and yellows
of the trees across the river, bursting with young spring
life and the promise of a full summer of cool shade
and comforting shelter from sudden soaking showers.
Next, she takes her brush to the foreground to highlight
the new delicate leaves of the closer trees that hint
of the color they will wear when the air turns cool
in autumn, as a newborn’s dependency foretells old age.
Finally, as the day wears on and the tide floods the flats,
the artist applies her blues to the sky and the river,
covering the brown mud and shrinking the island,
like a child who hasn’t learned to color within the lines.
