Lily Eyes

i’ve been packed in some

u n g o d l y   earth

like all of the dead i know

we are molding daisies

with our hands


her chest is

two perfect rosebuds

.         i close my lily eyes


leaves and cold rain


if i reach my branches

.                              a little
to the left

there are earth worms

digging their way up.


i try to dance with them

.         we twist freely in the dark

falling in rhythm with the forest


i’m blooming like my grandmother’s garden

  1. Really good, one of my favourite poems by you so far 🙂

  2. I keep reading this and finding something new each time. Beautiful and timeless…perhaps holding a premonition or a subconscious message (the blooming part!)
    You are soooo good, girlie!

So...what do you think?
