Ivory and Garnet, Snow and Roses, Bone and Blood

They forget she once had a name,
Before they stopped searching for her.
Now only whispers linger there:

Ivory and Garnet,
Snow and Roses, 
Bone and Blood.
She chooses dreams over waking, 
For closed eyes that see memories 
Only shed salt tears when opened.

(An ACEO acrylic painting on 2.5 x 3.5" canvas.)


  1. lovely and tender
    both painting and words
