Big Scars

she was always an enigma,

her hurts stayed in reserve,

a woman of terra incognita,

a rare mistress of swerve

 

its been ten years by now,

and I'm still in the dark,

Times Five

The moon comes at me 
through the trees, 
golden gleaming 
picking apart my seams.

It is sear and dry, bereft of natural surface water, and now is a watery playground for fishers, boaters, surfers and many others....
