Day 330: “Waving”, a poem block

My mental palette is heavy in oranges/yellows as a general rule, but the autumn always saturates it even more with those tones. I’ll be creating more small art to prepare for the City Art Gallery affordable art show I’m participating in during December & January, so it was a flurry of snipping with my new scissors in the studio today.

This piece reads: “waving back/ from the very first echo/ smiling and dying of curiosity” amidst a sea of yellow bordered in orange. These bits together painted a picture in my mind of one of those moments when someone lets an opportunity pass them by yet pretends outwardly that they’re okay with their decision.
