Blue Hydrangea

for Hortensia Anderson

Day light falls around me like these peony petals after rain. Dark, dark mornings, still darker afternoons, will this rain never cease? I think of you my friend and imagine you running in this rain, your hair flying behind you like gossamer wings. Then I see your warrior spirit soar—an eagle catching the high drifts of spring wind.

blue hydrangea—
the color of sky
after rain
