Women's History Month: Maria A. Arana's "Ashes"

once night disperses
pieces of sojourn thoughts
tempest willows
beckon my return
the frost renews vines and thorns
timid breezes overcome the bite
the night’s luminescent flowers
bleed joyous gifts reckoned
caught rumors
no longer summon dragonflies
stillness breathes on my ashes
and rekindles the worms already there
