Vivacious colors mingle, merge,
happy-dance upon blank canvas.
Yellow, red, and others converge
with joyous shouts of “Look at us!”
Shocked, the artist stares, most anxious,
as the sly, scheming colors beam,
escape the brush, paint their own dreams.

First Date

glowing fireflies emerge from twilight woods

male conga line searching for pingback mates

morse-code signals flash, reaching sisterhood

in grasses and bushes, who calmly wait

for their anxious, amorous, flushing dates

a beguiling bride blinks back a bright “yes”

her selected lover granted ingress
