Water Lilies by Kate Young

Immersed in waters
words surface at last,
clustered as lilies
in vertical seas
insensible sentences
jumble diffusion,
green breeding mauve,
circles of silence.

Dotted in layers
red flowers skim lightly
teasing the eye
toward red spotted blooms
bleeding their images
deeply on canvas.
New words, tied to paper
bleed a new page
