WAKING HEART'S VEINS

backside, front slide
whatever celtic profile
drips into the moon's pool
shawls twirl of mirrors unbidden
phrases and alphabets of waters wander
collapsing around the waist of marbles unturned

shelter me with a thousand
embraces from the moon's blankets
the wind torments me with granite whistles
when mother dusk wails for morsels of  biblical mercy
this decadent night crawls with exiled breaths. i breathe.

Beautiful use of imagery in this poem, Nette. There is a sense of desire as well as fear as "mother dusk wails." Very nice! Love, Carolyn
