shadow woman

when she fumbled for a catch
at every darkened door
strained to listen inside
for a distant song sung
by the river by moonlight
whose sorrow drowned the nights
slipped from her feet
flowed from her eyes
flew from her sadness
then waited for her, outside
danced with trees
with rivers with wolves
built oceans around her moat
shadow woman who cried
for a fortress
was answered by her tears
