Saline expressions

of ancient grief

crystalline drops


rest briefly

before slow roll down

burning cheek

caress contours of neck

leave thin pale trail

on bare skin

sink gracefully

around the curve of  breast

to dissolve on aching heart

an age of endless water

her blue phase

  1. Christine, another stunning poem! Beautifully written, and wonderfully visual. Your last two lines are extremely powerful, “an age of endless water / her blue phase”, these lines would make for a fantastic quote. ~ Mia
