Wilting Black Rose
Their boats were ours
Sailing from hot rock
To cold damp pebble
Yet their feet scolded
More than ever
Waking without sea
A rose in a room
With not a pane
Only a picture
At the end of the cave
Of hills and sun
But green pastil
Easily smears
Now the painting
Is hewn in rock
That needs to shatter
Pieces no more
Author's Notes:
This is abour the african slave trade and how racism is still an issue today when it shouldn't be.

This is an excellent work. Much visual and perception played in this tune of times not as far away as we might like to believe. Wonderful work. ~Pam
