fetch-whisper in my ear
to sell secrets simple
of what was done
in the dark
in the night
in the deep waters you
flowing chants
reaching down
with a forehead kiss
bones clattering clacking
tapping with the heartbeat
bursting briars
from the chest 
before the grey morning light

    • Thank you for your kindness and thinking of me.

      While I’m honored that you feel I am a good candidate for the award, I will probably bow out of participation. My reasons for not participating are too complex to put into a comment, but I may try to explain in a full post later.

      Thank you, however, and may others you nominate not be bound by strange personal quirks of character. 😉
