Giverny Tango

Chris Daleiden
 
After Claude Monet’s "Landscape at Giverny"
 
How the autumn wind
bends copper foothills,
tugs at the round barn,
rides the pewter ridge
 
up to this Giverny tree,
 
how they tango –
breathy partner
and swiveled spine,
 
how they embrace,
twirl, rock  -
 
until her leaves
fly like a thousand
migrating wings.
