The Living Story

Grey crows circling
depleting days;
red hearts escaping

like splintered bones
prostrate, impugning heaven
(in solemn tones).

Like open tomes
from collapsed wombs,
crawl we do,
outside our waiting tombs.

  2. Haven’t seen a post from you in some time, Randy, although I appreciate you stopping by my blog recently. Just hoping all’s well with you and yours and that it’s just because you’re busy.


Have some fun...
