Popcorn


Salt sticks to fingers
Like snow upon the ground

while flakes crunch in rhythm
to gleeful sounds

children laughing,
hold out their tongues

for buttery snowdrops
to melt

The Daily Palette Vintage

The Daily Palette is pleased to introduce its new Project Coordinator, Jennifer Erixon.

During the month of February we will feature selected artists and works from the Palette's archive.
