Dorothy on her Deathbed

The artist in me myself instinctively tracing 
work a share miseries to inspiration making

Shrouded within my cocoon of slashing brush strokes
lost lovely my Dorothy gently softly releases her yokes

A watch seeing graduations of deaths cold colours on her lovely face
ship me lost my anchor my heart lost love no longer in her embrace

    An absolutely beautiful verse! A heart speaks. Cynthia (my first name is Dorothy)

    So sad...when inspiration originates from someone or something lost. Your poem is a heart-felt tribute. - Gail
