Christina

A dress is just cotton  after all

Stitched in sections together

 The dress was not the point

The grass 

The meadow

The undiluted everything in a moment

 

It is that

And more 

That mimicked the sweet grasses

 

Like the high ears of wheat

That danced as a crowd

On that Cornwall holiday

When the sky was so blue

I believed the sea was upside down

 

It sang so purely

To the escapist in my pocket

The one who stuffed a strand of wheat 

Behind her ear

And stomped like a farmer 

On the plough carved path

 

Even the mud had exotic perfume

Damp

Rich 

Magic realism

 

All of this

In her dress

As she gazes to the barn

 

She was me

Before me was

 

 

 

 

 

Christina's World

Wyeth
