conifer

May 8, 2013

mirrored light
shattered
into a present’s shards
needle-thick thin
that prick
lagrimal sap
falling
setting
in one long moment
caught in amber
to last
to live
a whole
future

  6. Ah, caught in amber–that was the crux of the piece for me, and really pulled it all together. Great write–thanks for sharing!

  7. I’ve had moments that I’d love to release from amber. Love the progression, the fluidity of your work.
