Sunday Stanza: Poem Fifty Four: A Land of Honey and Milk by Hannah Williams

a silhouette
shawled in titanium
with footsteps soft as silk.
a graceless poise
pierces the back
promising a land of
honey and milk

a shadow
tattered in light
with sight dark as void
a sinister compassionate
misled the feet
promising a land
of honey and milk

a shape
stirred in sorrow
with tears dripping as rain
a cheerful gloom
clasped the heart
promising a land
of honey and milk,
again.
