Guest Poet Series: Day 1– Daniel Reinhold

Teaberry, Sassafras, Mountain Laurel
an encaustic painting

I will paint you a rhino
as silvery white
as the full sturgeon moon

I will burn you an image
with fire and sweat
into hot flowing wax

I will color
your world
copper and bronze

copper and bronze
silver and gold
silver and gold

I will color your world.
I will color your world.
I will color you world.

Daniel Reinhold was the first person to respond to our call for poetry submissions on April 12th.  Not even two weeks later, he died of a massive heart attack.  He was a brilliant, often times absurd, and incredibly sensitive man.  We will miss him dearly.
