The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website



Edie Miller

Soft muted tones
of painted flowers 
with their streaking lacy thinness 
each delicately veined petal 
in a silken water-colored voice 
like the scarce caress 
of my skin beneath his touch. 

The slender stalk 
of the columbine 
stands gracefully erect 
while a ceramic pot 
hangs in the corner, 
dripping fuchsia 
in shades of lavender.
