On Coming to Her

by George Repp

It’s not about originality
as much as it is borrowing paints
to generate a message
that targets the reader
to feel
and feel deeply;
to create a resonance
a vibration
in the center
of their own experiencing
so to support
their personal responsive chord
and evoke
the singing forward
as a new leaf
inhabits the branch of a tree
toward the end goal
of turning every leaf
to attend her.
