Based on the painting of the same name by Burton Silverman, 1998, Oil on Canvas

Ink spot mane
draping pale,
draping hills,
cradle soft,
iced and chilled.

Ink spot eyes
carving hearts,
carving canvas,
broken blooms,
growing down.

Hollow cheek
yet belly full,
Rosy symphony,
Rosy moon,
Hears her song,
Sings her tune,
these restless nights,
these subtle dreams.

Pink is restored in parts of the old pattern. I love the lines "ink spot mane and ink spot eyes." Reclining in Pink gives us clues on how we might restore a meaningful piece of art of our grandest soft pink heritage. I keep an old-time rose scent jar and occasionally restore the scent with dried rose petals, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, rose oil and glycerin packed in an old-time jar with a wire-stopper lid. Your poem Reclining in Pink goes well with the scent, Michelle...
