Woman

candle’s tireless flame
burns to stub
in melting wax
staying lit
when darkness calls

  • Sunflowers by Neetu

    I will plant sunflowers
    in the hollows we have dug
    with a rusty spade

  • In the Mist by Neetu

    mist fills the night—
    there are no ghosts, just my self
    and me in mellow light

  • Aliens by Neetu

    be happy
    she says, her soft arms
    hold me as I lean
    into them
    seeking reassurance
    a promise to protect

  • A Simple Truth by Neetu

    be happy
    she says, her soft arms
    hold me as I lean
    into them
    seeking reassurance
    a promise to protect

  • Old Country Welcome by Neetu

    The sign is posted
    on the porch
    I’ve walked many times
    this way before
    through seasons warm and cold
    but no one appears at the door.
