White Beauty


White beauty
Life within
White beauty
Naked still
In wind, flies
White beauty
Quickly dies
Yet wind tries
Gives it life
Phoenix like
Now reborn
Another
White beauty

Submitted on 8th September 2010 to Thursday Poets Rally Week 28 🙂

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. I love the purity of your poem…white beauty…:-)And the rebirth, likened to a phoenix…I admire such….I love white beauty in all its simplicity, the pic I mean…:-)

  3. Beautiful words and image.
    When I was younger I named my future partner my White Flower.
    The name symbolised her purity, honesty, peace, love and beauty.
    Your poem reminds me of that.

    I have found my White Flower since.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Peace,

  4. Beautifully written… why do pretty things have to decay some day? Well, everything does eventually.. (sigh)..so that was a rhetoric..
    I really like the forms you use in your poems.. the variations.. it always make reading exciting!!!
    A lovely contribution to the Rally, Leo!
