Broken world (VI out of VI)

our hearts are breaking

there can be no healing them

until we find peace

a rare rainy day

will not keep the drought at bay

but it brings a smile

watching houseboats floating by

Sensory exploration

what hides in the dark?

explore the darkness without light

perceive the darkness

At night

when joy disappears

my soul flies into the dark

where I find your trail

bring balance bring time

protect me like a mantle

from a midnight lie

love me love me not

I’m an intricate woman

touch me touch me not
