Engulfed

This beautiful rose She cries as the dark abyss Engulfs her moment Her flaming petals Screaming as combustion takes The blackness confirms

Great job, James. I particularly liked the image of the first stanza. She did seem to be surrounded by an abyss of darkness. I think we don't have to worry about those pandas. Poor things dying so fast, they sure will not have much opportunity to be attacking us. It was fun for me to learn about them in that contest. LUv, Andrea
