Favorite Quote:
"..though warm as summer it was fresh as spring." (Thomas Hardy) ("Far from the Madding crowd")

Black painted lips, smile in a glittering glare of heat: red, crimson: dove white tones sitting over a cushion-flattened skin of lips: the mole drawn delicately at the edge of her bone: and the rose blush illustrating dark flowers onto her shiny face. Red, deep white thorns cut the trembling face: that crafts a mosaic of weeds, and a garden of gold sunflowers: and posies . Black; shining hair, transforms the tender face: and lollipop-carved buds float into her tunnel-boned tongue, the seeds shooting into rains of cream lilies: and roses.

The author's comments:

A Dark poem evoking scenes of nature; to be enjoyed as a short Poem: set in a Garden of mysterious things. The imagery of red; and white is an important illustration of the piece's themes.
