Everything is Violets Today

 

Everything is violets today ~

weavings of spring or death;

even the sea holds an amethyst wash.

The bait collector and his little dog

trawl the mud flats in search of worms.

They draw themselves in charcoal outline

against a sky which lightens

as the dog leaps, splashing mud.

Into the purple silence come his sharp

sounds and the cry of gulls.
