'Spirit'


A photo prompt from Poets United

 'Sorrow' by Dechobek at deviantART


Even in grief, with
Features distorted by pain,
She is beautiful.

Weathered like earth, like
Earth she’s resilient, although
She is suffering.

Die she will not, for
Spirit does not have an end,
She is spirited.



Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
