Color Blind

and night-glo greens
of Northern Lights
captured in frozen flames.
Pond ice
frozen clear
giving glimpse to
what lies below.

and Ferris wheel crimson
of summer carnival captured,
frozen in liquid fire
behind glass.
Sparks dance,
heating blood.

and ever greens
line crooked fence,
branches capped
with snow--hats.
Pine scents
accent brutality
of ten degrees.

and Black Walnut browns
form split patterned designs
in yonder woodpile. Husband
turns cord and sticks into
pictures and smiles.

and irridescent mirrors
blank the ground into fresh palet
for puppy prints.
Squirrel tracks back
to hop a fence, assured
of being race winner.

Blue flash
and black tartan
clash with scarlet--
a cardinal syntex
of wildbird waltz.
Stripes dart eager
to chip away at dropped seeds.

A feast of color
for hungry eyes,
now too often dimmed.
Fifty-five years ago
doctors cautioned
surgery was but
a temporary fix,
best they could do.

Crystal glass
and iris shattered.
Blocked all light then
blinded with brightness.
Like photographs
I file images away
for future reference;
to pull out, scan
and play with.
I won't need eyes to see.
