Broken Mirrors 

Faces lie in shards  

broken on the floor,

reflecting something

not known anymore.

.

Faces lie in shards

splintered by a heart,

an image of love

shattering apart.

.

Faces lie in shards

mirroring a pain,

distorting a truth

hateful self disdain.

.

 

Faces lie in shards

echoing a past,

fragments of a dream

severed by the glass.

Petals Cry 

Flowers wilt dejected 

heads falling to the ground,

Petals arched in sadness,

its pittering resounds

.

in tear drops descending

from heavens gloomy brood,

dampening the spirits

of natures cheery mood.

.

Rainbows burst in colour,

and spectrum curves of hope.

Misery diminished

with sorrow it elopes.

.

Sun rising redemption

all of its flora shines,

perfuming the colours

of happiness defined.

Chevron 

Contour lines blur creating  

Hallucinogenic stripes.

Ever sharp in corners meeting

Vertically and horizontally

Reaching their gradual point

Outstretched psychedelic zig zags,

Nicely patterned tricking your eyes.
