Pastel Beauty


Lady in the Garden by Paul Peel

Pastel beauty, ribbons with lace
surround her face
of innocence
in his absence.

Her eyes filled with a love drenched light,
far from finite.
Her heart awaits,
not knowing fate.

For all she wants and heaven knows,
trouble bestows
her bachelor
to another.

  4. So soft, yet so tragic... I guess pastel doesn't ensure that grace is always rewarded.

  6. Beautiful rendition. Lesson to be learned too... if you sit around waiting that's what you'll do.
