The Pull of the Moon




Fifteen
bangs the screen door
drops off the porch, melts into air
parents folded from sight, pressing
hard against skin, everything pocket-thin

Eighty-four
watches the night-blooming
cereus slowly open, scolds dandelions, works fingers
under roots, holds onto earth, breathes
hard dark-secented air

Beautiful bracelet! I love the poetry and stories that go with your jewelry. Lovely!

Perhaps you would consider entering this in our monthly challenge at Art Bead Scene? The theme this month is Midsummer Night's Dream.

Thanks for sharing
