Poem: bleu

(Illustration by Lauren Lee)

wrinkles shift beneath tattered sand

bushy bristles curve in gentle slopes

pointed high towards the evening sky




chirps crowd the dewy air 

Mixed with the melody of a howl 

hoots pierce the clouds,

twisting and slipping between fluffy snow

like a dainty blunt needle

clicking a tat-tat briskly against its twin 




springs of fushia paint the stars

smears of a galaxy of lights dot the inky blackness of the mountains’ silhouettes

trills coat the sigh 

dropping like a wayward slip of a leaf from its guardian oak tree






deep within the senior’s breast, a cackling fire raged
