Dreams plucked from the sand

Where they lay, silver dragons

Opposing the sea


My desert heart waits

For your indulgent smile

To redress the cracks


Heart slit base to stem

Time wasted can’t be respent

The hourglass runs red


Confession pending

You brush the sand from your hands

Keen for a response


Submission for

Haiku Heights
