As part of an attempt to ressurrect this blog for the sake of seeing something once loved verified and reanimated, I thought it appropriate to start with this poem, written around 2009. I can’t give much in this prefatory note; I know very little about the circumstances of its creation. Only that back then I was caught up in passions and violent emotions dipped in the flavor of young love, tempered slightly with aggression. I was in a tumultuous relationship with my then wife, Nicole. It may be therefore an expression of the angst from frustrated adoration.
It’s short in content; it may be entirely possible to read it straight through without having ascertained its meaning. See for yourself.
Winter’s Black Decay
In winter’s black decay
Rise sheltered roses that hide in day.
Their sensitive petals unfurl and spread
Giving off luminosity, bright and red.
And through the darkened skies above
Shine tender sunlit rays of love
That penetrate the thick cold air
And soak with warmth these frail flowers fair.
