Giverny Tango
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.
