Dry, lined, withdrawn
floating in the wind
bending, brittle, rustle of leaves
rocks, buried, rigid, cement
smooth, gray and embedded
lines are drawn, drawn within
veined, brown, old, rejected
harsh realities submit their requests
clang, signaling weathered change
Transferring tones into cruel, forced connections - Into and out again, alternating futures pointing the way...Swept away into vast smoky skies - A soul set free to drift, to skitter across a hard and cold rocky surface, separated by patterns, signaling steps from dusty ruin.
The conundrum of purity and wholeness;
Sin and the sinner; not without the other, the uninvited guest comes to rest, holy and damned.
