chagall backdrop

I pick ground tubers
orange, white, deep purple,
while my students practice
yoga ’bout the hills
around us

In morning sun and overnight dew
I laugh then cry through the splendor

Prisms of light diffract there
on my lashes beaded rainbows

I close my eyes slowly till I am consumed
by indigo, orange,
white, deep purple
