Sweet is the voice of a sister in the season of sorrow. ...“ ..

Sweet is the voice of a sister in the season of sorrow.


In the split second, 

The devil's crimson hands

Grabbed the bud yet unbloomed 

Removed the soft petals harshly

Like a hungry tiger on a prey,

Then there was no more of it

Withered before blooming in

The devil satisfied the appetite

The flower was gone!
