Rubies 2/5 (2)

Red streaming down,
dark as rubies against the snow.

Born from a mistake, a cut,
falling from a height.

Gravity takes it, cradles it, caresses it,
then watches it spiral, spin, down down down.

It reaches the dark, black ground,
and crumples into a puddle.

Red ribbon,
dark as rubies.
