Imperfect Gift


Silver skeins of moonlight water

mysterious as a winter mirror

reflecting strange mystical spirit

darkest indigo ephemeral augury

echoes blue-black sky clouds

the colour of her silken hair

far distant sounds the rain

gentle as a virgin’s kiss

she left the imperfect gift

patient revenging sorceress savagery

adulteress treachery so fine in bliss

and every wrong was mine

  1. Hi Jack, the words make a nice link between the two pictures. I sense a coldness in both images. A coldness that can make all the muscles of the body seize up with pain.
