A Kiss from a Rose


I’ve spanned the edges of echelon's ledges
And languished the austere abyss
From the hue of grey’s obscurity
And time’s eternal perpetuity
In stone I make my pledges
And intomb it with a kiss...<><

    Sometimes a piece of art has no meaning - and its sheer beauty lays within that fact... As the Mona Lisa Smile. It's the hint of a secret that is so mesmerizing sometimes - and not always its reveal. Your palette of words here create a beautiful mind swirl. The fact that it takes me nowhere is what ravished me so.... In deed a moment well spent - reading this. Thank you... (Report) Reply
