a grey stone skips cross

the lake causes ripples of

what was, what can be

I Shall…

“I shall have to believe even though I cannot understand.”

-Edgar Rice Burroughs, A Princess Of Mars


dawn draped in shadows

whistling wind snips the candles

Death breaks and knocks thrice


a scar starred body

constellation of freckles

flesh becomes legend

“I must not undervalue my work simply because I enjoy it. A working artist understands his worth and lives by it.”

 -Mary Robinette Kowal Of Noble Family


crisp leaves, crisp apples

tumbling into warm sweaters

and into cold nights
