This one is a mixture. It is like presenting my new baby. Hope you enjoy it.


Shards From A Looking Glass

red tears flow
from a broken heart

shattered dreams fall
into shards from a looking glass
crashing into the crimson pool
gathered at my feet.

I stumble, sway, and fade.
Quietly, I fade

into eternal night.

I am at peace....

Read is the color of sorrow.
Black is the color of grief.
White is the color of pain.
Blue is the color of peace.

Let me fly in blue skies.
Let me rest upon peaceful seas.
Let me live in harmony.
Be at one with the breeze.

Scatter me into the wind.
Let me float among the stars.
Whisper my name in unison.
Carry my soul to Mars.

I will dance for eternity.
Look for me in your dreams.
I will sing in the woodlands.
Hear me in the mountain streams.

Red is the color of a songbird.
Black is the color of earth.
White is the color of purity.
Blue is the color of New Birth.

That is one beautiful baby !
and crimson is my favourite shade or red, and when the broken return as a song bird.., the beauty is celestial
