One Poem by Felix Purat

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Rinascimento (Foliage)

Out of Augsburg and Nürnberg
Green foliage sprouts from the void
Celadon, olivine, smaragdine
The Renaissance arrives
Influencing from on high
But in Augsburg and Nürnberg
Enlightenment emerges from
The ground up, from inky brown soil
Into dainty white flowers
Curving up, twisting south
Leaves veer in every direction and no direction
And in so doing, the potential of
Is realized one leaf at a time
