FL | Life houses


Life houses

blind lovers
recalled tides

the lifted cups
the secret birds

old suns set sail
removing moons

sacred encounters
recraft mother-girls

colder hearts singe
the doors of dreams

systematic pleasures
shape frothy sonnets

reflective ions rotate
black unsealed velvet

celestial bodies stream
while starlight realigns

sorted grassy splendors
fill empty green sleeves

another bright ambush
derides a glorious train

salience restores houses
where poetry takes place

silky skeins unwind there
beside rewilding coastline
