Old Woman   

   

            Arrows cut through hearts of cloth,            

Rose water fills the air,

Her hands, like small pink weeds,

With rusty nails in potted hands,

Brow covered, with soft old curls,

Like swirls of glass like, grey water,

Her stonework as worn as a shoreline

growing smaller yearly

Yet…her words, still cutting from her jagged tongue.
