Untimed, she chains herself in song
slips words to sky,
stills her heartbeat
to trebled moon.
Too soon, she finds the world bleeds by
and steals her breath;
her slanted sigh
a troubled pause.
Just cause for holding all things loose,
a quiet truce
with empty hands.
Blank page, she stands.
This is a variation of the “minute” poetry form, for Quickly.

Oh my gosh, I really love this.
1) I had to turn “trebled” into “tre(m)bled.” The moon really wants it that way.
2) I love this: “Too soon, she finds the world bleeds by” … all the longer lines, really.
Very nice, particularly the last stanza.
