Today’s Short #Poem 066

White Burst

Nineteen winters
burn willow and snow.
Sheaves of wheat
lean against plaster walls.
Apples and shadows
blend with wormwood.

A messenger,
brushed with feathered chalk,
gave birth to all that followed,
rescued me from leather shell,
laid seeds in fallowness –
westward, seek the coast,
escape.
