“Shades of the daily heavens on high”

Lavender
Gil Saenz

The unforgettable beauty of lavender
Occurs in both the earth
And in the colors of the sky.
An aromatic flower,
As well as part of the many changing
Shades of the daily heavens on high.
The creamy color of the sky–
Color of orchid dawn–
Is quickly there, and then is gone.
Light violet, lavender,
How unique is its special glow,
Colored in nature in light lilac,
Amethyst, and airy, purple indigo.
