Fragile

a fragile heart
once torn apart
yearns for love
her turtledove

he walked in
with a jaunty grin
she felt renewed
joyfully wooed ©

Kindness

Because she had the fragility of glass,
He made his voice a pillow, his hands a snowflake,
Melting as it touched her face.

Wall of Glass

A wall of glass
can fool a foe
by fragile look
will stand each blow
just as a heart
when made of same
is battling
a cheater’s game.

fragile sharp threatening
truths

who would in turn smash
you

into something
less prone to light or
pain

Dirge for a Hawaiian crow

The scientists have a bloodlust on them
as merciless as hunters —
They tagged your fragile claws
and caged you, for your own good,
far away from your forests
