Sapphire skies in sanguine eyes

In the absence of complication, Trials and tribulations become distant memories. Above sapphire skies delight sanguine eyes - Inspiring forthcoming musings of the mind. Hope of a brand-new day conquers Disillusionments of the past Hosting exuberance on resplendent arc, Condemning the nights of angst In triumphant adjudication By the authority of a bright new dawn; Leaving behind feelings of torments, Emotions dispossessed, forsaken, and forlorn. In the dread of winter, when he left her, Beguiled by the aspirations of spring He was her only poet laureate Crafting her life’s laudable poetry. She trusted him fully to write her songs. But the man who charmed her piano keys, As he was leaving, destroyed all the lyrics. She is no fool in the world of romance-- Cognizant that a pretty rose has ugly thorns And gentle winds yield to violent storms, And marigold designs sprinkled on magenta Mesmerizing eyes, in sight of sunrise, Never come inspired to stay very long. Yet, she’s moving on, enamored in new song, Euphoric to answer call of her heart For a new artist’s brush exalts her canvas-- Who sings her praises in verses of love And paints her dreams in romantic themes. Neither a blemish in her twilight skies Nor a hint of clouds in her cosmic view As the starlit evening wallows in full moon, And a night of revelry scripted for two Aspires to new horizons of sapphire hues. November 20, 2019 Placed 1st: Complete the poem—in the absence of complication poetry contest Sponsor: Silent One Placed 3rd: Strand select P contest by Brian Strand

Winter and Spring.. nights and "bright new dawns".. "thorns and roses".. "winds and storms". death and rebirth.. Dualities, souls will ever enjoy and weather.. We learn to rise above aches and understand that we have many a chance to enjoy the bounties of life. to find souls that help build us. to sing "new songs of love" and "paint dreams" of different taste and colour. A standing ovation for the brilliant entry, dear Vijay! An amazing poem worthy of an outshining win! Definitely a FAV! Regards
