“I'll paint them big,” she said,
and so she did –
sending huge splashes of color
rolling across sinewy canvasses,
rioting through art halls.
She escorted the dusky palette of the desert
to the ambitious New York skyline.
She brought the beauty of bypassed details,
blossoming with swirls of fluorescents and pastels
to the eyes of the fast-walking, fast-talking,
fast-living city-people.
Her careful eyes searched out the modest furrows,
the bold ripples of huddled petals,
breathing soft reverberations of life into her page.
Georgia paid homage to what no one else did:
The flawless energy of a flower.
