Treasure Island

Untarnished


The stark whiteness is all I see,
Perhaps it’s just reflection,
Of conflicting emotions in me,
Every facet with a brilliant glow,
Rainbows dance
On the brink of that snow,
But something else catches my eye,
A scarlet shade in that austere white,
A rose blooming,
Its thorns frozen,
Leaves the darkest of emeralds,
It’s just a small torn corner,
Like pious part of my soul
Trapped in confines of a sinner’s heart…………..

    Suberb picture you have drawn with the rose as a symbol of everything pure in the whiteness that is life, as we leave our own trail of sins, goodness, hope and love as we struggle and fight for who we are!
    You have written a perfect gem! (Report) Reply

    Interesting the colour and depth of the promise of the bud and its potential of seeds a primordia of seeds, an ovum a promise, in all things a promise of to defy the austere. Nicely written. (Report) Reply
