Chocolate rivers and licorice trees

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “[Sonnet]” by Carrie Green: grove, empty, frozen, blossom, sand, wings, works, veiled, recall, taste, pocketknife, steal

Chocolate rivers and licorice trees

That frozen breeze works like balsam to wounds

The taste that hounds his dreams and also tease

And if we please not recall the obtunds

Splashes of colour filled the view

Blossoms and hue veiled the whole set

As he reach for his pocketknife

Birds’ wings and empty life

He stood near a grove of trees

Try to appease the afterlife

When all is rife and here as yet

Started to fret his life

And all these things flowing down the river

Can’t deliver what wasn’t there at all

A serf and thrall to hither and thither

As he shiver in the wind he looks small*
