..raven black


flowers etched in glass
their bloom immortalized,
their frangrance a frozen promise
never tested hence never broken....

flowers etched in glass
their couplets monogamous prophets
suspended in impotent fidelity
never lured hence never wavered

flowers etched in glass
paragons of worth
my reflection amidst them
human, tarnished, raven black

    Wardha, It's a beautiful poem with perfect wording. Some lines are really 'paragons of worth'. The last two lines suddenly uplift the poem to a new height of meanings. (Report) Reply
