busking the hues of lily and resplendence

Illustration by Priyanka inspired from Sunset in Venice by Claude Monet



Banished, like red in manipulation of the colour of cattail upon the sunset palette of an impressionist busking the hues of lily and resplendence cropped about a surround of oak.


Howl is unseen in tangents of leaf forayed to canopy overstrikes of rye buzzed in the fume of a dandelion blown white and pastel phased to hoof print spared the harsh or strokes of cloud where wings are foretold with sky flush in earth tones to ground and shed petal blurts of yellowed brown-tinted dash.


Editor says: An impressionist palette is described in Dionne's poem, the colors of the sky are mixed quietly with the fragrance of flowers. When an artist dreams he sees colors and in Dionne's words you see a painting in the poem without any inhibition. The colors freely blend leading to that surreal painting.

"The sunset palette of an impressionist

busking the hues of lily and resplendence

cropped about a surround of oak."

I could see Claude Monet thinking of colors before painting that sunrise painting. In her words, a slight glimpse of that fleeting moment is seen when the sky is flooded with the poems only if we readers had time to read it.
