Beta Pleat

find me among the lost art the rubbled refuged heart traced in a cryptic place from finish to start ~ waves that mark this clandestine face with the veiled lace of a ripened kiss the warp and weft quiver of your tender bliss ~ © M.G. Iannucci 2019 Art: “Weaving Lace Wings”, by Dorina Costas
