Absolutions

Written by: Carrie Richards

Listen
to the silence
adrift in the brittle sky...
and behold pointed fingers
of mute admiration

My hand
belongs to yours
in this solitude of night
as you show me without words
the miracle of stars

We glimpse 
her bare shoulders,
as Venus brushes her hair,
tumbling in the darkness
like a quiet snowfall
