Kanneliya undertones

Pic by Sakuna Gamage
The wide sweep tells
of large things broad 
the pretensions of the wide-angle
history's grandeur 
carves the boundaries of the licit,
but in the underbrush of life
as drop and skein
a color slip and parasite
there's another weaving
smiling at the broad brush
and strident painter 
of tall tales and kings,
that's narrative too;
softer though
in the revelation
of lesser anxieties
the subtext of foliage
and processes 
passed over for comment.
