#112 (wailing widow)

photo credit: Matthias Geh


shallow ponds

resting in the forest heart

She dipped her toes in tears

and followed the

scent of stars

moonlight on her forehead

a thorn in her side

when silence came crashing

and pity poured over her

a relentless flood

drowning her dreams

in all shades of fear

wailing widow

dressed in despair

cloaked in coldness

she kissed all hopes goodbye

but one

who remained

a single firefly

dancing between despair

and deliverance
