Eternal Petals – Reverse Etheree Poem

Weekly Tanka Prompt Poetry Challenge – Week #85 – New & Old

Eternal Petals

old
are the
rose petals
of the young girl
so broken inside
by the ones she trusted
forced to endure the wrong touch
her soul shattered into pieces
every breath she takes with great effort
now a young woman with no life inside

seeking to be healed by a loving force
she turns her eyes towards heaven’s Healer
and inhales the life-giving breath
she stands to rise a gold rose
her petals eternal
never to know shame
a risen soul
living free
she is
new

  2. Profound! I actually uploaded an ‘Etheree’ of my own on my blog a few hours ago. I’ve linked it below. I would love it if you read it and gave me tips or advice on how to improve (this applies to all of the other readers of this poem as well, because you’re refined enough to read this ‘Etheree’, you can certainly help me improve). Thank you!
