Leaf of Heavens’ Leavings

written by: Aurora Phoenix

 

I dream of a leaf in vein
a tree of fitful leavings
the veins plumb blue black
with the claret of my desires.
the legacy of leavings drops
\sanguine crusted\
strewn careless aground.
in the smoted eye
of a rabid fawn
I glimpse the future
as we conspire.

despite the tea leaved
clouds
we scuttle upon shooting stars
and tighten
our wounded thighs
as we Picasso
purple the heavens

I spent over 2 decades as a clinical psychologist, prior to the decimation of my world when I was suddenly incarcerated 3 years ago. My writing was born in that caged existence – not a choice but a soul-saving necessity. Now I am working to hone my craft as I write about daily life, in all its trials, tribulations and moments of exquisite joy. I write as Aurora Phoenix at Insights from “Inside”
