House of the Tomato

If a woman wants to be a poet, she must dwell in the house of the tomato. -- Erica Jong

Existential

(I tried something different. a mindfulness poem, based on some observations this weekend. A modern art museum in Mpls. and a snowy drive home)

Empty space
opens up
clutter gone
making room for muse
a white wall,
floating palette.

What rainbow
of word
hovers just out of reach
arcs across
horizon of space
slowing thought
or even absence of thought

artfully brushed into bliss like
fresh snowing
painted on trees
not clingy
just there
for beauty sake
accumulating,
words in waiting
unique
unalike
ephemeral.
Now.
