jm 6a wht mid s

I dissolve
blue into greyness,
hints of greens
dusted white,
playing with seasonings—taste
the bitter between.

jm 6a wht left s

You garnish
me with cold crumbs—you toss, stir,
fold me in
confusion.
You flour me with absent songs,
lost ingredients.

jm 6a wht right s

Where is spring?
The earth marinates–
veiled bouquets
lie in wait
to complete the recipe–
feed these hungry souls.

My monthly grid(s) for April 2018; the poem was composed today for the NaPoWriMo prompt of changing voices.  The weather in/con/spired.
