923. For Georgia - Lenore Horowitz

(Georgia O'Keeffe)
 From: (

Lines map your face,

and eyes like blue stars

set my compass

to your north,

pull me,

as you follow coyote

to trick him,

make your own image

his mirror.
You fill my world with color,

shape it,

scrubbed clean

in your own truth,

with courage,

steady, certain,

lodestone of my own desire

to show how light and shadow fall

across my world,

according to my dreams.

Listen! Coyote howls a lonely song,

yet looks for me

in his own night sky.
