Sapphire Sleep

She bleeds indigo
islands
ebony smudge
saffron secrets
petaled
puddled
edges of cotton
thought
…………………..all
……………………for
…………………………..naught.

    Gorgeous sound, coloring, and spicy scent:
    “indigo
    islands
    ebony smudge
    saffron secrets”

    I do believe everyone is misreading your ending. It is not “all for naught.” Quite the opposite, it is “thought all for naught.”

    This pained,

  5. I love, love it all but this portion…
    “saffron secrets
    petaled
    puddled
    edges of cotton”

    I really LOVE that!! So happy to be reading, “de!!”
