Her Eyes

Look at her eyes of darkness
silent birds
through colossal redwoods
where green smells
of eternity
black fish kissing
slick foreheads of statues
drowned in forests
of kelp
whispers of foxes
at the edge of night
on frozen tundras
such is the soul
in her eyes

"Black fish kissing." SOmething about that line really resonates to me.

That is a powerful piece. The build up to the end is very well done.

this is truly beautiful Vesper! I'm so glad I stopped in.

I do believe this is my favorite poetic piece from you. In the Detroit creative community, I've heard it said you are officially one of the "Northern Lights."

My friends, thank YOU!

I'd love to meet this girl, even though the description of her eyes contain "whispers of foxes
at the edge of night". Yup, I'd still like to meet her. :)
