forget-me-nots
delphiniums
gentians
irises
water-wooed
water-weeds

ink-stained
fingers strain
holding pen
shaping words
carving the word
as pen-knife
shapes quill
will whittles word
word hangs in drops
as nib stabs
indigo

armies goosestep
across landscapes
my page feint lined
as marching forces feint
prussians   saxe   navy
(british  french)
fine veins stretch
across the page
between the lines
they have
one hell of a blue.
