Magpie tale, 3/6-7/11

She wanted the reds,
and shadow and browns.
her brush was thin
she lifted the tip
many times from palette to page;
finally the tiny stem
made it possible to bring
the crinkly flavors
to her plate.

Maybe the 'plate' at the end could have been 'palate'? That'd be even more cryptic...

I can only imagine how difficult it might be to paint a garlic masterpiece ... how much time it would take to get every little element just right.
