Remembering Wistfully Purple Sunsets

In response to prompt here: readwritepoem

The rigid wave pattern
On the red wrapping paper
Renounced white plainness.
Me reminded while plaintively
Rocking with papoose of mine
Of redwoods, water, pines,
Many yesterdays ago.
Reality: white porches
Now, and rude walled palazzos.
