Etching Herself a MoonSliver

image 101gorgeous photo by Tess Kincade



Shiver only once
in this braided light,
and you’ll know the way
………………of sorrows.

We’ve got a thou
-sand tomorrows to fill,
spill through this hour
glass; scratch with this
fingernail crescent scythe.

    Oh, how I love the first stanza. And the hidden title: etching her “self” — a moon’s liver.

    I think she IS the moon’s liver. One of its vital organs.

  2. Just beautiful! “braided light” and “fingernail crescent scythe” — very nice.
