Flesh between bones

Naked dead stands the tree
Naked lies his sister, prostrate
Prostrate on the eroded grass
Prostrate riddled with decay
Decay returning to the earth
Decay an end’s new day
Day past, a climbing sun
Day set, about to splinter
Splinter parting, catching
Splinter rips flesh between bones.

      • I haven’t written much myself, married life has me busy (: just trying to make my way back to a place of comfort, feeling the stifle of melting clay and hoping to tear down my fortress so I can write something beautiful today…

      • It’s been a long year hear from near as you can be to the start of 2017, in the midst to the dispersal of a generations possessions with little progress as waiting on a coroner’s findings and determination.
