rarity, I find

I watch as the rain comes down heavy Luckily abandoned Lucky for us Roof still sturdy enough Walls still strong enough Security Such a rarity I close my eyes and listen to the sounds The silent ting ting White noise beautiful Scents from the dirt and the leaves Shivers trace my skin It is nice… Continue reading rarity, I find

Cries/Raven

I watch My babe Estrella lovely Playing as only babes do Furs thick and heavy over my shoulders I blink Sluggish sleepy weak It is dark in this hollow mountain cave Dark, bar the fire light flicker flicker Air thick with sweet smokey food smells The teeth mother fills my bowl She nods Insisting I… Continue reading Cries/Raven

sea glass green

Trees Taller than I have Ever seen Tall as buildings Tall as monuments Nature's statues Relics Skyscrapers of bark umber Sea glass green leaves Shimmering in the twilight heat Glimmering haze oasis Mirage hallucinations Hallucinating Clear as day Clear as shallow seas Shallow graves Shifting light Sun rays warping filter Kelp wafting anemone arms Rays… Continue reading sea glass green

gods’ eyes fall

Sigils and signs Giving protection Mother's talisman Father's rope around my neck Markings of magic Of the gods Trees whisper the names of my ancestors Telling me this this right now is where I should be leaving my cave home the hill in front of me it's peak too high to see the place where… Continue reading gods’ eyes fall

dead zone children

I sneak Tip toe sshhh Toes in dirt bare Dirty The water watcher Sleeps Night snarls echo Empty chamber tremble I can smell the blue The green The darkness of the pool The air is different down here Forbidden Only rations are allowed Only rations My lips crack When I smile these days Lizard tail… Continue reading dead zone children
