entry picture

She offered me a peach

I looked at the Stars instead

The winking of A thousand suns

Wrote verse inside my head.


She lifted a burning ember

As tribute to her face

Her searching smile

Of knowing thoughts

She claimed with nothing



Then folded gently like

the hidden memory

of her smile,

Her parted lips

in silence

said more than

spoken breath.
