Savage Seasons

Seeking sanctuary from sawdust and savagery

She shares her silence with sedate seagulls

As sacred soliloquies tumble from her sackcloth;

Her stumbling spirit spills sapphires

And savage seasons settle within the ensuing calm

    Good use of alliteration. The poem reads wonderfully outloud.
