Variegated

Variegated leaves

Your identity mottled,

Yellow and Pink,

Magenta and green.

Veined and speckled,

Xanthaphyl and

Chlorophyll,

Anthocyanine.

These are pigments,

Changing light to food.

Shade loving or sunlit,

Deciduous wonders,

Delightful colours.

Wisps of fantasy,

Patterned delights,

A figment of imagination

Made reality.
