You all were so kind regarding my poem, “The Gardener,” that I thought I’d share another recent piece.
I hope you’ll enjoy, and please feel free to share your thoughts and critiques in the comments.
Kneeling by her window at night
Sky so high above her
Starrier the longer
Swath of thinnest dark
Holding back Heaven
High to pull it aside
To see the golden Homeland beyond
But the veil remains
For now she is meant to be earthbound
