Power Of Pearls - Poem by Elizabeth A. Detring

the words left unsaid...an arrowhead thought
hidden source...an espoused embrace
time dangles in front and behind, then there is pain to every
mysterious line crossed from a corner out in the galaxy,
when the bottom of the ocean offers the gift of pearls.
never a desire for more than a moment speaks.
the words left unsaid...an arrowhead thought
a hidden source...an espoused embrace.
then and only then is time.
