Tenebrous Toes

by Cadence Beret


Tenebrous toes
Digging holes
Through my tenacious soul

While I lie
In sabled sand
Somberly on my own

       like a dancer on point
       planted solidly on ground
       my tenacious toes have
       never let me down
       even when tossed
       and blown around
       in every direction

My tenacious soul
Always pulls me through
Every tenebrous time

And my tenacious toes
Always carry me through
Even when on sabled sand
