Solute

 

dyes in water.jpg

 

Capturing a mood of mine

As dye extracted from lapis lazuli,

 

Ground, made soluble, its heart

Bleeding out in a cloud of its true colour;

 

This way, you feel the dust of me

Grind through your thirsting fingertips, to touch;

 

You hold this ochre palette stroke

Of cinnamon, gingers, turmeric, the spice

 

Blended to breathe inwardly

The heady taste of this changing mood of mine.
