“Watercolour” by Virginia Lowe

Saffron and rose madder

sea-sheet reflects

in symmetry the sky

On this burnished brightness

waves encroach

Leaden opaque they flow

zinc white against

the watercolour’s glow


A vision or a concept

beckons bright

But words

which seemed so clear and pure

across it spread

do nothing but obscure
