gleaming gold
you chase away my sorrows,
burning them in your flame –
you are the star
eating away my weaknesses,
you polish my edges
take a rough rock
and in exchange
leave a ruby gleaming
scarlet as a blood red moon;
my flowers bloom more
fragrantly now –
I only hope your price isn’t
too high for I am but
a fragile lily locked in a strong
soul unwavering as the limbs
of a tree refusing to be broken –
please don’t destroy me,
my petals are all I have.
– linda m. crate

broken pottery
rosemary lips blink into being
beneath pale milk white skin
framed beneath vivid scarlet hair –
freckled dotted her nose; she
smelled of roses and nectrines tinged
with a dram of heartbreak littered
in the stars and her blue eyes –
he hoped to mend her broken pottery.
– linda m. crate
