all the leaves

Alienor returns to the Aquataine
from Days of Mercury

A vanishing
While visible
cobalt mist
cascading
Diffusing
lilac & fauna
steel heart
Glove
stiletto
No word
but arias
just out of reach
Quieted over
torn branch
drowned petal
a jaundiced
fog shrouding
flight
of the
grey tail hawk
circling the
estuary
to the vaulted
battlefield
Even
beyond
putrefaction
Of red lesion
over one eye
Banished
on the sunken harbor
silented grief
creeping vision
under the
hull of
voyages
relived
in the
burnt
vanishings
At azimuth
so pagan gods
Save the queen
hooded eyes
ignites
radiant waves
the crown kumatage
she summons
all of the creatures
to Aquitaine.
