prompt 2: dark and deep

dark & deep ~

         with apologies to Robert Frost

the woods so lovely

conifers unfamiliar to a prairie dweller

tall spires of green as deep

as night        as dark as grief

I look for you among the trees

turn to catch a shadow

movement startled as I search

not you        not you

radcliffe hall spoke of the well

the well of loneliness

how she could not love

the partner of her choice

and still I love you, searching

listening to the empty rooms

the chambered heart

silence dark  and deep
