Salt and Glass

From a wonderfully short and inspiring book, Writing Down the Bones, Natalie Goldberg puts out the challenge to write two three-lined poems (a loose definition of Haiku…) to the words Salt and Glass. No editing ~


sand glazed gums

an abhorrent floss

I appreciate the variance in flavor


Will you wipe the cloudy film from yourself?

I ache for the landscape behind you

maybe you were meant to be a wall
