Indian Paintbrush Memory
After sundown a burning apricot
color expands from beyond mountains Olympic &
hits our hands
the soft hands of lovers connected as
waves Pacific proclaim the end of another summer day
a shadow of pine casting its darkness into a
spot by the rocks near a fluorescent green tidepool.
Shadows lengthen as a memory of Indian Paintbrush will
emerge in wax where before was only black plasma & imagination.
