A Mother's Love

Postby Dragondust » Thu Oct 08, 2015 10:22 pm

my painting to go with this poem

Carver County Treasure

Rhythmic chomps stop the romping bronze-haired boy
who pivots, spies a lady’s fingers clutch
a Honeycrisp, a chartreuse fruit brushed rose
like amaranth, called by those who know
a fine “hand apple,” great for eating
off the tree, juicy droplets shine
like dew on lips scarlet-lined,
and fingertips.
The cheeky youngster lounges on the rustic orchard
checkout, spouts a “Howdy,”
watchful as the moneyed stranger munches
on the crunchy treat; his mouth, a front tooth
missing, waters as the one with deeper pockets
savors flavor country-grown,
a little rich for him, this white gold,
gift-wrapped red.
“That’s our apple,” touts the hovering, brown-eyed
sprout, a produce patriot, proud of Carver County’s
pricey prize. “Beats those ones from out-of-state,”
drones the ruddy, budding spokesman,
skinned fists firmly planted on slim hips
poured in blue jeans handed down,
scuffed knees buffed green
with clover stains.
The tourist chuckles and rewards the imp’s
impassioned buzz, holds out her bucket
tucked with Honeycrisps, offers him a couple;
flashing back a scampish grin, he mumbles thanks,
flies off to mom to share the wealth.
Beaming pleasure, the woman turns to go,
knowing who—not what—is
local treasure

Inspired by the group writing exercise at the Chanhassen Library visual poetry workshop.

Attractive interestingly styled painting with good compositional elements and superb use of colors. I like it. Good job with the selection of the frame too.
