Raspberry Ring

Ernst Haas — Red Rose

A blurry line flails across 
a bumpy page ignoring 
the landscape of words 
and sentences and 
careless young thoughts.

Those thoughts, largely 
ideas seeking an audience, 
are incessant 
in their chatter, 
stature and poise.

Behind a blurry line, 
before it penetrates paper, 
a pause occurs when 
line tightens focus and 
paper prepares to push.

Pushes that youthful line 
into becoming a particular 
word which precisely connects 
idea with emotion (serving-up a 
raspberry ring to help us see).
