Her Destiny


"This poem is not about what is written, but what is not written."

Was it you
who called butterflies
of white diamond flight
in resurrection of soul
unable to find

To you my poor lady
whom eyes favor shown
why must belief 
fall in rains doom 

Could it be in despair
the naked tree weep in song
o how her pastel love
in silence had simply gone

But, to find lovely boughs 
to whom her love drape
must my hand reach distant
for painful tear, I must take..

Poet ~ Rick Parise

    Congrats on another piece well written. I love the third stanza (is that what it's called) i'm sorry still very novice at this... "Could it be in despair the naked tree weep in song o how her pastel love in silence had simply gone" I love this....
