:::wood dove:::

Obedient rows of tiny white cherries sail
in a violet sea; I can see the fabric of her
dress, but not her face.
Never her face.

The length of her hair changes, sometimes 
curly, sometimes straight or wavy, yet always
a gingerbread brown.

In the distance, almost within reach, she slumbers
deeply, waiting to be born.
