Tetractys

The Message
Brick
Oblong
Instrument
Inert being
Yet when thrown carries a potent message.

Leaf
Crisp
It gasped
Under foot
Though once verdant
Now its sapped span lies prone spent and broken

Big Cat
Fast
Slender
Seductive
The cats’ sleek shape
Lures all those around barely murmuring

Dawn
Blink
Flutter
Tired eyes
Meet morning light
Each sight a miracle in its own right

Child After Radiotherapy
Frail
Fragile
Slender limbs
With sallow eyes
Too young to comprehend, consumed by trust
