a staccato wind
buffets the horizon
and the pencil-like cypress bend
their uplifted arms keep’n
time to the rhythm

green colored scrawl’n
on ground, cerulean.
vincent’s keep’n time on the mend.
visions celestial lay’n
as thick as a thumb.

the swirl’n’s penned
time into an oiled grin.
and though paris ignored the trend
we marvel at the scrawl’n
of that ginger’s drum.
