Issue 7 - Karla Linn Merrifield

Painting of Sagebrush (Green), Clouds (White), and Raven (Black) on Rice Paper with Wax

                                                for K. C. Tebbutt

Low-ground: Rio Grande, its liquid orange at sunset.
High-ground: Sangre de Cristos blood red before dusk.
Mid-ground: the indigo empyrean between.
Earth turns violet on black wings.
The sage Cloudraven of Taos—night’s yellow stars
in his eyes, obsidian-black—makes blue come
into the artist’s micaceous backlit orbs
afire in the blackness of space.

--Karla Linn Merrifield
