Blood Pearl

Kenneth Haley

Eugene, United States

Artist's Description

In the hiddenmost vessel of your heart
I find myself
reaching through the shadow of scarlet dreams,
a fallen bird’s feather
drawn from the wing of joy
and offered to you
as parent to your soul;
the hummingbird’s gift is no match
for the music that begs for song
for your song
silent as a blood pearl on the tip of my tongue.

Photo taken in Lane County, Oregon, USA. September 2013.
