Broken for Magpie Tales

Willow of Magpie Tales offers the following image for the weekly prompt!


Broken

one moonless night
the train of her dream
crosses a thin threshold

without warning
tracks to the rim of space ~
steams into the wrinkle

puffs of powder
sigh from the broken shape
of collapsing worlds

the clouds grow quiet
under the moody chords
of the mourning dove
