Holly is known for her luscious and sensual imagery. While I’m deep into NaNaWriMo, I thought I’d share one of her poems that swept me away on a tide of beauty. I hope you enjoy. ❤
Bone white as driftwood, I stand sturdy
as the currents. The waves rush to shore,
collect against sugar mounds then fall
lacy back to the sea.
The ribbony pink sand diffuses light
to a soft ecru that coaxes abalone
and urchin shell to an ambient glow.
Soon the tide will devour the day and
night will descend, distorted and bowed,
like the curve of horizon that swallows
the sun in a wheel of sparks and the
moon that I made for you rises in
flecks of gold.
