Almond Blossoms


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

  1. 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.

  2. 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

Thank You :)
