Mag113 4/15/12 Mermaids


                                                                          Red Roofs, Marc Chagall, 1954

Curled around and stepping down
through a red town
with spirits hovering to pluck flowers
and plant some blooming
in window boxes all around.

Some children are hugged and fed
some marriages proposed,
some dreams are coming to life;
new myths are being carted in.

flowers being plucked by hovering spirits- lovely
I tried 2 times to capture this image-so very complex.
Yours is quite lovely!
