black as the core of an eye
deeper than my endless sea
as fathomless as a mind
quickly sprint out the door
met with a surge of cool winter air
scent of buring wood alights on the morning wind
frozen winds swift through deadwood branches
whipping snow against treetrunks
a glittering ring was given me
a clear transparent crystal set
in glass of every color to see
one moment i want nothing more than to be with them
and the next i realize that
what i have could be better.
i am a minnow
And I am one of two
Named somethings so simple as Ella and True
We’re mostly plain silver
Cold winds strip away face, hands, ankles
stand bare foot on the empty shore
staring out at the endless ocean
sea of happiness
they become part of the water around them
their greeness blends with the blueness they are surrounded with
and i see the meaning of the ocean
three brothers owed a man a favour.
so they thought to pay him with chickens.
with thirty hens.
each brother giving ten.
