rise and fall and sway

I have visited this home
Rows of corn swaying outside.
A baby swaying within.

I have always loved to use things 
differently, playfully.

pink and purple

I do not especially gravitate to the colo(u)rs pink and purple, and especially not the prissy pastel versions, 
which seem to wilt.
But how I love the pink receptacle placed here 
near the pyramids, and today, the gentle 
purple slate seen in the hills of Hong Kong.

Rest, my dear friends.
Be restful.

before the fall

These apples will fall
all by themselves.
