Sage ~ A Haibun


We've planted a sage.

Light rain graces the flowers,

amethyst petals

Those who observed saw the world around her burst into color. She could not be darkened. In her house, every room was a different vibrant hue. In the front room was a sharp aquamarine; the hall, a deep rose madder; where she ate, a brilliant cadmium lemon. She was only tempered by candle and silhouette on the amethyst curtains and walls.
