Curious Smiles

she is the apple fruit
and shadows burdening;
sweetly they drift;
her shadows,
felling insecurities of night’s unobscured heaviness.

and curiously she smirks
shadows under her
drifting cavity.
being.
a being.
with visions;
visions of kindred blindness.

The rain falls hard on her shoulders
but not her face.
She needs to hear her strength.

Why Crooked Little Flower

Watching a little flower, crooked on her stem, just singing in the wind;

not broken, not breaking; but singing and swaying,

among all the other wild flowers; not alone but in her community.
