Instead of our regular raisins,
my husband and I picked up some golden raisins
during our weekly trip to the grocery store.
When we opened the box
it almost took my breath away.
We marveled at the rich colors –
an assortment of gold, deep yellow and amber
tumbling like leathery gems
into our open hands.
Since we are both painters..
we tried to identify the colors we saw
in terms of paint:
As artists, we can only attempt to reproduce
these beautiful objects with brush and pigment –
We might even come close..
but they would taste awful.
