An Imperfect Bride

Let’s go! It’s time!

Now!?

I’m still in my floral blue knit night

gown, plum-colored sweatshirt, &

baby doll slippers from Walmart!

No one will see you or care.

Not important.

An uncharged phone?

A half-packed purse?

Uncompleted morning duties?

I gather myself,

an imperfect bride,

for the trip.

I view trees in autumn attire ablaze

against a sky the color of my blue on white china

left unwashed in the sink.

The creeks & river have risen again,

meeting us along the road.

Muddy currents obscure clarity.

Mesmerized by the mystery,

I arrive at the bank

with dry lips the color of pallor.

In the stillness,

an ancient sycamore disrobes.

New Audio: Dark Mother

The solar eclipse this August, 2017, is a huge wedding for Dark Mother! Enjoy this invitation. You are all invited!

Dark Mother
Seeks to wed.
Gossamer star dust,
Ancient nights,
The trail of her train,
Her Groom,
The Sun.

Dark Mother

Seeks to wed.

Gossamer star dust,

Ancient nights,

The trail of her train,

Her Groom,

The Sun.
