Over the Snow

Over the Snow
Monet had his haystacks and water lilies
to paint again and again, while I have
my variations on a scene with a
blueberry bush seen from
my bathroom window,
on February 27, 2015, sketched on March 1, 2015
7" x 5", Winsor & Newton and Holbein watercolors, and

Uniball waterproof fade proof ink on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico
cold press fine grain 100% cotton watercolor paper
framed, sold framed, $100 plus $5.50 sales tax plus $9.50 shipping = $115.00

...the snow, grass is grounded, pausing;
damsels resting, someday to fly;
lady's slippers are tucked away;
fireflies flying, no, grounded;
morning's glories, merely a thought;
beetles are well hidden for now;
the black-eyed Susan's eyes are shut;
crickets are silent, no chirping;
and true forget-me-nots are not
forgotten, all simply waiting,
waiting, 'neath a blanket,
 waiting for summer's coming turn.
