Alizarin Suite

1 Comment

Star-like notes

Afloat

Sing sacrosanct

Above evergreens

Crimson deep

Paints

Cold seasons radiant

Reflects cranberry,

Alizarin, poinsettia

In icy windows

Winter

Wears quiet red

Solitude’s

Sanctuary of the heart

Spins

Darkening days bright

Author’s note: Alizarin, to painters, is an ingredient for madder lake pigments of crimson hue. The ancient source of alizarin was derived from the root of an evergreen plant in India with a starlike leaf structure
