Wistful Watercolor

"you are a watercolor:
you are spring's sailing blue,
you are summer's laughing green
beneath a gray wash
of long light and floating mist.
you are translucence in twilight's rain,
you are calming lavender splashed on pale beige
gliding down my arm, a curl of sage
that is your navel, swept by thrusting tides--
a beacon for the lost like me,
who need to relax the brush
before painting your smile,
inhaling your earthen-baked breath,
and kissing your cracked lips
until they begin softening
into gild-less shades of flesh.
you are the heat gathered at your finger-
tips, on your tongue, as you become
a sea-swollen tsunami
that paints off the edge of the paper,
an aurora borealis slipping silently
upon the floor, your brilliance
pooled in the stillness of my mind"
-Shanti Perez

I am head over heels in love right now....with all things watercolor. Perhaps its the ethereal strokes light with air and optimism, the soft ombre colors, the fluid motions, the dreamy and romantically careless yet intentful drips of color....
