Changing Faces: From Soprano to Contralto


Changing Faces: From Soprano to Contralto

leaves, teabags
pyramids I climb
honey, milky way
a moonbeam
let a teardrop
read cookies
spell cackle

scalpel edges
soprano
big scene
watercolour
...excellence
...trim laces
on sun dance

mezzo-soprano
add lace
cor'..set era
lose dark hues
add rose
dash of green
butterflies

earthy tones
contralto
touch of amber
brush strokes
terracotta
brown revolt
chocolate

soiled fingers
crease palms
meadows
lemon easels
oil, sun
serenade dreams
made of this

*Tried to fit in the WEP phrase: 'You wake up, look in the bathroom mirror..' Kind of tricky in a poem like this. Hope you enjoyed reading the poem:)
