Blood and Roses

briar rose s

hidden journey
waiting, shadowed, briered–
rooted secrets blooming blood red

Another cinquain, in response to Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above.  The collage ended up feeling more ominous than I intended.

Fairy tales do have a way of mingling the dark with the light though.

    Not all fairy tales end in happy ever after….

    I like this very much, Kerfe, though it touches raw spots. A powerful piece.

    The collage is ominous. That shadow figure is scary. (And isn’t it funny that I “remembered” it as a man with a hat, but when I looked back it wasn’t? Why people aren’t reliable witnesses!) 🙂

    I read more mystery in the poem.

      The light bulb probably caused the hat…no we are not reliable witnesses at all! I started out with quite a different intention with the collage. But as these things go…

      I agree about the poem. I may give it another go for art that is a better fit. Sometimes things need to percolate for awhile.

    Most of the responses to this photo involve fantasy, but your words are the first to allow me to sense “fairy tale.” Somehow that seems like a trite observation, but you’ve lent an ominous air that hints at an intriguing story.

    The shadow of the person in the background adds a little mystery to me. It does have a fairytale feel to it. 🌹
