poetry

Cathedral of Bones

Hidden in the undergrowth
Among bluebells galore
Lay the carcass of a deer
Who lives no more

Eyes, like starlight
Reflect the moons gaze
As the foxes inquire
Giving thanks and praise

Owls in the daylight
Intrude on the scene
As I pass by unnoticed
Rib cage picked clean

A cathedral of bones
Architecture of creation
A new fallen alter
Void of temptation

A cloak of cold fur
Sodden with blood
Sacrifice to all nature
To bloom in the flood
