ON THE ROAD AGAIN
(a shadorma)

I will show
that I’m not so slow.
From low trails,
sights set high,
I’m a snail who’s on the move.
There’s no stoppin’ me.

LOW TIDE
(a shadorma)

He loved her
once. Upon her strength,
he leaned. And
in her arms
he had been awash in peace.
She was his refuge.

PLACE OF REST
(a shadorma)

She rests in
the warm rays of the
setting sun.
Time has run
out on the dreams of her youth…
her end has begun.

DESTINATION UNKNOWN
(a shadorma)

Overhead,
souls are carried high
through blue skies.
Left behind
is a mark of where they’ve been.
Now, where do they go?

LADY IN RED
(a shadorma)

Though a bug
among the garden
beauties, she
waits to be
noticed, knowing she is more
than a good luck charm.
