Frail womb of abandoned land,
yester’s bloom sleeps on sand,

Spring smothered by concrete,
limp wings, desperately plead,

Summer steadily blaze,
dissolving winter’s grace.

Form: Essence

  1. Dropped in from Ayu's blog. This is a really nice post. You describe a very grave situation.

    Frail womb and yester's bloom are very strong words indeed. If not taken care of now, there will be no offspring and there will be no tomorrow. I like the way you bring in the summer's blaze and the dissolving winter to add a lasting blow, the punch required to drive home the point. Really nice.

    I write at How I Wonder. Do visit me some time.
