“Saying ethereal is too easy…”

 
                 ~ after Karen An-hwei Lee

Mystery is to waterdrop,
as fractal is to skeleton.

As honey thickens
in the lung or in the hive.

The rubber tree gives its sap, 
engloving the  hand that adjusts 
a patient's lifeline.

Loving is an act of many
dimensions—

As waters warm,
corals bleach but they
are not yet completely dead. 

What other things
have given up their color
for you?
