Scraps

a road excised
from the fabric of knolls
offers unfurled curves
like fortunes from a cookie

ardent red tree trunks
favor no-man's land
below the crystal ceiling
with one foot in the mire

and yet it's there
she chose to wander
on that road excised
from fabric of the knolls

I loved the internal almost-rhyme (unfurled curls).

Exquisite piece. Love the pulling of colors, threading into the knolls, like those of a comgy quilt.

Mysterious and compelling with interesting contrasts of language sharp with excised crystal, and soft with all the "l" and "ur" sounds..I am liking it much.
