Painting Flowers

Painting Flowers

A Poem by To be scene To be heard

Tattered dress.

Drops of blood splatter the grass.

Fingers scarred by overlooked thorns.

Long blond matted hair rains down.

Covering my hollow face.

Delicate white flowers cover the bushes.

Such a beautiful flower.

To be ruined by a unsteady hand.

Lifting the petal I slowly brush the petal red.

Rubbing the soft smooth skin between my fingers.

Rain pours down.

Streams of crimson flow through the garden.

The roses once again become white……

Photo gave life to the poem. The real beauty of nature can make us appreciate the beauty of earth. I loved your description. Allow the reader to have a great vision. A strong ending to a outstanding poem.

"To be ruined by a unsteady hand." - The a should be an an.
"Lifting the petal I slowly brush the petal red." - Try not to use the same word in a line twice. It reduces the effectiveness of it.

This is really cool. "Painting flowers" - nice interpretation. Your description was excellent.
