Louie Levy Poems
A Black Rose
One Black Rose -
among roses, colorfully void of black,
liken any other yet immortally fragrant
Significantly mutant in empathy,
brings with its presence, sincerity,
consolation for lives lost to the
darkened shadows of human ill tiding
The presence of BLACK is revealed by its absence,
appealing to the reader, who sees black roses in all roses.
Restless Holidays -
-without Peace for all saddens our abused Earth,
with reminders that we are all privileged tenants; all
are to feel the wrath of environmental fury being
invulnerably Omnipotent over what seems to be,
we the feeble, less than grandeur, human life.
Keep then spirit,
we are that, which
helps others who cannot.
