spring collection


marketa's wardrobe runs to muted tones  

myriad greys

olives   and the browns of a winter forest  


matching her hair   matching her eyes  

belying her radiance

we haven't been together long enough


for me to know her spring colors  

i know her pocketbook  

she will not have a spring collection


she will continue wearing her somber hues

but just as a young man lightens his step and countenance

with a sprig of color on his lapel  


so she will don a smile that brings to mind

the colors of a spring garden in bloom

That's what a change in the weather can do. Nicely written.

This is more beautiful the more I read ir. There is the beauty of feelings of tenderness and of hues.


Nicely written. Spring colors are overrated. I always preferred my muted greys and browns and forest greens until Summer really takes on. It sounds like those are the colors that flatter her best. You have such a soft way with her. A tender poem.
