the ravens have eaten her heart

see how the thunderhead pounds
its coveted earth
heavy-handed as a jealous lover

just as the roiling sea loves the beach
against which it rails, raking angry
finger-marks through soft mounds of
care-tossed grains, silica and shell

I do immensely enjoy your wordplay, in each of your poems. Rich, filling each line with the substance of an image or a metaphor or both.

Cheers.
