Death of Salome by Kristina Gehrmann

Poetry
Adversity

Cynthia Parker

Strong wings sculpt the obsidian sky,
each stroke etching its presence upon the surface –
scarring forever the endless expansion
of the canopy that protects all creation.

Within those scars lies a radiant beauty –
one that draws a being into the darkest
pain, yet delivers it unto the brightest heights
to find the strength of its own wings…again.

First time I looked into the BellaOnline Review. 'Adversity' is quite an impressive lyric.
