Sonnet on a Scarf (Re-Imagined After G. Klimt)

download (1)

A colorful scarf, like a tree in bloom,

Ripples in the air-a gesture to the moon-

And seems somehow to shine with a secret light:

A gift of radiance in reflective night,

That here conceals, there reveals, curving lines,

That flow like waves, and flood as each unwinds.

And as each its darkness does unfold,

A florid spring of blooming light  embolds:

But let it fall into memory’s sea,

Where it rises and falls, and rests with thee.
