My #20 for National Poetry Month


ground fissures,

creating jagged lines

obscured in the night's eye,

slowly, I slip,

slivered, into them,

feeling my way down

to a place underneath

where i wait

to be made whole again,

while the moon's light

stirs stars overhead.

i sleep.

      This sounds like a painful, jagged edged tubling into the realms of night to me. Voted up and sent to Tweetland
