So...here is my try...
Mirrored spuratic patches of growth along paths give life,
meaning to a cook passionately gathering fiddle head fern tips
Joy disembarks early morning furtive schedules, as mist rises,
fumbling stage-coach, off road, wheels crushing into uncertainty
glares are given by mistresses in disassembled turquoise gowns,
magenta hats with exotic feathers, costumes balancing cups
hot cocoa turned cold, held with delicate hands wearing
gloves coated with long night nonpareil pleasures- wasted talent
food engineers time on silly amusements for strumpets; delicate
butter, seasonings will turn foraged greens into savory moments
for kings, a masters most admired preoccupations, winning
job security in a days passing....
