The moor

Reena Prasad

    Wounds woven into the grass
    erupt on still mornings
    their raw edges held close

    High and thirsty
    vultures fan the ground
    having tasted a red liquid rose

    Some cuts heal beautifully
    stitched anew
    with glistening threads of hope

    while a vast wasteland waits
    to garner fresh sores.
