Bridge between moon & sky

 

come dusk, you stitch your broken-

ness with words frayed as blue butterfly

caught in canvas.  you paint walls

out of lines, gaze at silence 

brooding as crows perched on lines. you

watch the moon strip the darkness, 


~shadows flee & light~


spills on your face, the sky

glitters with starlit trees & blooms

buzz at your ears as busy bees 

on spring day.  come dawn, birdsongs 

swell and the marvel of all: you

sun-dewed, yellow-daisied & carefree

  11. This cries out to be memorized and recited, eyes closed, with your toes just barely dipping into the warm edge of the lake.

  20. Perfect title for this.
    "you stitch your broken-
    ness with words frayed as blue butterfly caught in canvas" Such a delicate image...I can feel the hurt in the words "frayed" and the choice of blue for the butterfly.
    Those crows cawing, brooding, are so dark here and yet you move through to the sun and cheerful daisies. The movement here is perfect. I really enjoyed this one, Grace!
