Collage and a Poem

3x5 inches, mixed media collage, loosely based on a painting by John Marin

Emissary of Light
by Mary Jo Balistreri
in the 2010 Wisconsin Poets Calendar
tiniest mandarin
sun in my palm
without seed or netting
with no strings attached
segment after sweet segment
of spiraled radience
a the year spins cold
as the indigo mood lost lost jobs perisits
you give hope
from a baldchin of boughs
balls of orange fire
a taste of paradise for the taking.
