emptiness expands-
outside winter coils
in tap roots

the hearth gapes
retinal aberrations draw
networks of vacancy

i can sense her
in folds of intuition-
nerves comatose

  1. I love the sense of “what was” that you have brilliantly described with such an economy of words, Mohana. Thank you for sharing this exquisite piece.

  2. Ditto on Grace’s comment: Emptiness expands is a great piece of imagery because, when we become aware of something being empty it does seem to grow in size, until emptiness is all we see. Don’t like the mention of winter though…lol
    Well penned.
