Picture Perfect

 
A Violet by a moss stone, Half hidden from the eyes ! William Wordsworth (The Lost Love) ~~ I am a girl a little bit gothic and so ethereal, Within a folded rose I hide myself from the world; My ebony hair a veil to view the horror that I perceive, I peer beyond my velvet petals to find beauty. I cannot speak of my pain to those who care, Choosing to hide my feelings behind a crafted mask; And within my perfect rose I dream and dream and dream, My visions take me again and again to this place. Above a full moon dances with billowing clouds, The ornate gate creaks as I push it to enter again; A winding road engraved upon my mind beckons to me, I glide pass reaching gnarled trees. Angel statues do not comfort me from my sadness, The rows and rows of tombs an eternal maze of stone; In the misty cemetery I drift beautifully ethereal, Until I hear the first bird song. _____________________ August 17, 2013 Verse Written for the contest, Picture Perfect, Andrea Dietrich

    Like the first line of your poem, I find this to be "ethereal" writing. You do that kind so well, Constance. A beautifully painted picture. Congratulations on being in the top ten list!
