Beyond Translation

There was no blue in ancient Greece
Homer’s skies were iron and bronze
hung above a wine-dark sea
Likewise, Chloros
seemed to be the word for green
but in literature of the time
honey was chloros
dew was chloros
even tears and blood
Leaving the impression that nothing
was seen in terms of color
that cursory observations were secondary
to intrinsic distinctions that mark
the essence of existence
So the blood’s red hue was less
important than whether it was fresh
as morning dew, moist as honeyed tears
or still as an afternoon
-Shawnte Orion, Sakura Review

Interior Love

What do you think of this Michael Bastian interior? Oddly enough, I’d never personally go for the look of pictures and paintings covering the walls, but I always enjoy it when I see other people do it. This richly decorated Victorian-esque room gracefully balances on the line between overly ornate and coherent. I particularly love the colors.
