ROSE GENTIANS by Jeff Callaway (Texas Outlaw Poet)

the color purple

in mosaic shades

of

rhetorical explosions

onto a page

grape grenades to grace

with such floral royalty

they animate

like raspberry ironies

my ivory blank

canvas erupts a

plum page

the petals swirling in lavender

articulate

like box fan blades

circulate

around their lemony centers

the yellow antennas to splinter

rose gentians in Spring

making me remember

everything

in all my lilac daydreams

deliver me

gold is nature’s first green

with its livid imagery

these purple passages sing

the pollination of

a bumble bee…
