delicate; provocative. I like it.
The subject of depression is ever fascinating. In this poem, I'm not sure who is depressed, the speaker or the woman, but it works both ways. Your use of the word 'soils' is very impacting in the last line.Thank you for sharing on RT.
i love the compactness of haiku.u achieve the duality of precision and resonance so well.
We never expect that... alabaster soiling. Yet it does. And when it does, adds weight to the melancholy.
How concisely you pinned that moment to paper : )Wish you a happy new year btw.
gently depressed is very thought-provoking...
precise wonder.fantastic conclusion.
