Ode to a dish

This plate seems ordinary,

Well alright then, extraordinary,

There isn’t one like it in the world

We painted it ourselves

It is green and red, a perfect watermelon,

Made with nature’s complimentary colours,

An art teacher once showed me a colour wheel

and said

Orange and blue

Yellow and purple,

Green and red

And now you are far away in London

And I have this dish

That we painted in 2008

This dish
