Sunday’s Impression


(Columbus in chains
on a caravel bound for Spain in 1500)

Cochineal skies deepen to dark purple
     just after sunset

Icarus quivers in molten clay and sand
     on Cuba’s shores

The sea rolls mazarin
     with a frost of emerald

A flash of place
     beyond the sun’s extinction

Crescent of sea, arc of space
     where west squires east
     and shapes share secrets
         of golden arms
             burnished madonnas
