Contrasting Red on White

An unexpected silence startled me

and a red tinted wine glass slipped from my fingers
and crashed onto the white stone tiles of my patio

Red shards scattered along the all weather flooring
with splatters of red wine pooling in low spots

I was stunned and collapsed
crashing in piles of disjointed brittle confusion
askew in muted panic
like a red wine glass
tinted
now in a thousand pieces

Scattered shards of recognized brokenness

An unexpected silence startled me

  1. There is a moment of breaking when the awareness begins, you have illustrated it wonderfully in this. There is equal light and dark reflected, so symbiotic of our duality. Loved this Henry! ~ Rose
