Amethyst daydreams smear
Bathing celestial scenery
Crystal orbs of memory
Float through empty thoughts
Ambrosia sweetened breath
Flies through watercolor life
The Gods whisper seductively
Offering false eternity
Their words laced scarlet
As the rosy nectar wafts
Among the weeping cypress trees
A flit of silver mane
And a trace of love's perfume
Blends earthen soil
And the horizon of forever
In a whirl of rainbow ecstasy
With a shallow promise
The gilded chalice is raised
To my shivering lips
And with melancholy wishes
The nectar emblazons
As true life is sacrificed
At the gallows of immortality.

WOW Krista! WOW!  What a treat you've gave me tonight! (Well, I guess the other great Passion's People too  ) Such a scene you've painted and the beautiful imagery.. it was a captivating experience!  I really like the last two lines, along with countless others... really quite a work you've produced this time!

Nice work, Alwye - You've used some really good imagery to enhance this work.

"The gallows of immortality"... There's a creative oxymoron, my friend..

Krista~
Far and away one of the prettiest
I've seen from you.

The very images are lovely.

Krista, very beautiful.

A flit of silver mane
And a trace of love's perfume
Blends earthen soil
And the horizon of forever

I really love this piece......
