THIS FRANGIBLE HEART






all photos by PSC
This frangible heart
sifts fragile feathers
from eggshell fragments,
weaves gossamer dreams
with transparent dewdrops,
imagines iridescent magic;


trying on translucent wings,
ascends a flimsy stairway
fancying flight, 
but taking a leap of disbelief,
slips, trips, fails,
falls a broken butterfly
