By Kaleen Love

She was a colour: Yellow.
Both the hot lemon kiss of citrus sun
and a tulip bulb, a small chick peeping,
the razzle dazzle of morning with a
a tender, glowing fire.

I was so long: Blue. Dark at twilight,
warm-cool aqua on a breezy afternoon, a
tremble in the shimmer of summer glaze
(cerulean, midnight, ocean, sea)
the teal lilac dust of liquid swell.

Somehow – and this is the mystery –
without a glance or a knowing
we overlapped and overlaid to
Green: whistle song through dancing grass,
husky breath humming from sun-dappled oak,
haunting rustle songs of
forest and foam,
lime and leaf.
