Best Kathryn Collins Poems

+ Fav Poet



I am pale, head to toe
and if dying be a fading,
I begin my descent,
from easy pink to opal.

Pearlescent blood barely
floating now through veins
supplied by a heart not
eager for activity.
About to sleep, I hear my child
call from far away or deep inside.
Color resumes and I am
wearing ruby slippers.

for Jeannie

    I liken the ruby slippers to a brilliant rose named after you Kathryn. Your writing seems to come from another dimension, a most beautiful one!

    This is strong, succinct writing, Kathryn! I am able to glean such a range and depth of emotion from so few words. This is when it all comes together for you.
