My #16 for National Poetry Month


beauty comes in silence

fashions her garments

from tree tendrils

wraps fingers through

leaves

pushes her marrow

through each vein.


she tenders of herself

in the slip of silence

until, satisfied

that the forgotten

are fed

she falls back into earth

through pores

pulled open by grubs.


the earth breathes.
