Transition – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

What happiness can arrive
when sunlight's retreat paints

 leaves cherry crush, berry swirl
 butterscotch eye candy

 walking through an ordinary Monday
 your hand in mine, we breathe the awe
street lined masterpieces
colored by a lack of chlorophyll

 less of something  
 created more today

    “butterscotch eye candy LOVE these words…and the idea that less of something (chlorophyll) can make more of something (beauty and brilliant colors)!
