I am tearing up
this dark canvas
of a world
where I’ve been thrown
to become a still life-
I pray for
a turquoise sky
for my sanctuary
for new life, rebirth,
for my almond blossom

Yes. I feel this. Sharing.
Being a still life is a wonderful idea. A sane response to all the madness. LOVE the almond blossom words.
May those prayers be answered!
We all are, Sumana… Sigh. Beautiful.

I can hear Vincent’s voice echoing in this poem, Sumana, his almond blossom words.
May your prayers be heard…may it be so…
So beautiful, Sumana! You have the words already.
Gorgeous! I too feel this one!
It is sad to realize that many gifted people were not recognised as such until after their death. Humanity is a perverse creature wasting its wisdom.
I, too, wish for such tenderness for the world… How beautiful you’ve put it.
aah so much contained in so few words!
Beauty is so important in a dark world reflected in our literature arts and architecture. Let us return to the turquoise sky and things of beauty
