To Kathy on Painting Færie Found

Flowery red petaled stalks
  along side white pedaled ones
  raising among green foliage.
Færie's been found.

Look aside
  Look askance
     See in between
        See beyond.
Then færie's found.

The foliage behind
  green on green
  leaves against leaves --
Askance morphs into
  Queen Mab.
She found færie --

How wonderful and affirming that
  my poet's vision
    is revealed in
      her painting.
