It seductive to stand
At a distance
With reigns attached
To the horses
Beck and Call

Far enough to
Never hear their
Writhing and whimpers
From starvation like
Unfed dogs
Teeth cut through tissue
Of old resistance
Blades of green
Graze on humidity

How will we fair
When the sun is red
And moonlight obscures
Days imbued in dreams

waterfalls run
across fingertips
bathing the surface
of blooming hibiscus
Ashley Kay Jun 5
The wind changes
imprinting ripples on
the shell of the skin.

A series of farewells
The sky is cracking
One silent storm
Breaks the levee
Collapsing a flurry
of mirrors
Into a smoke screen
of Emptying
Ashley Kay May 26
Hidden in the sage
There are
Petals of a new voice
Soft familiarity
Blurred edges
Like a riverbed

A yesterday life distant

Abandoned before arrival
There is a slow call
Back to the pale brush
Patiently waiting
For the return of the aroma
Named change
Ashley Kay May 19
Scour my edges
to a polished state
like a wax figure
Standing still
And straight

Breathless among
the white canopy
I wait to be drained
Of stagnancy from
my reservoir lakes
