I ask are all seas lazy blue,Screen Shot 2017-05-06 at 12.08.50

do mists lie like purple skies?

Do some soar,

singing sweet symphonies

and others cry,

their skin ripped raw

in the bitter red rain?



I ask do you recallScreen Shot 2017-05-06 at 12.18.33

how petals rusted like blood

in the rain

and you became

a shadow in the sun,

a whisper in the wind?



I ask the roseScreen Shot 2017-05-06 at 12.27.47

with petals red as blood,

does your beauty shine

in the light of the sun

and in the shadow of the moon?
