Winter Portrait

Written by: Frances Angela Torrelavega

Being halved in a disc 
of ember and snow,
tinges bicker merits on opus.
Exulting own shadows 
after breaking from spectrum;
from erstwhile adjacencies, 
contrasts commence.

Sable consumes radiance of white
making the latter peep at night.
Grey has veiled beneath its blanket
tangerine's burst of smiles and giggles.
In false humility, azure weeps:
portraying dolor in dark hued navy.
Bold and proud, crimson was;
but is now eclipsed behind jaundice cast.

Behind the shadows, colours dwell
secretly longing for dominant reign.
Monopoly: alas, they yearn-
ignoring the threat of audience, bored.
