One Poem by Michael Caines

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Tuft, c. 1514

All that’s left is
leaf. (And petal,
reaching/dipping
stem, a green blade,
white and deeper
green, under-cast
of joint shadow,
plant life in the
early sixteen-
hundreds, just as
Albrecht Dürer
painted it). So:
not much, really.

 

Michael Caines lives in London, and has had poems published by Allegro Poetry and Visual Verse.
