Ink blots

Star crossed lovers of tragic beauty

Heroic stranger for too long,

Until the sands laid claim

Stoic woman and two girls – in time, three women steeling their way

Alone again her painful sorrow indelible…

My own babes beautiful women, so alike and not

The one aloof, unreachable

The other a future of questions and fears.

Ache in my heart, my gut – is a calcification in my bones.
