The Frozen Blackberry

!~The Frozen Blackberry~!
An unknown sadness
& madness prevails.
The heart bereft from
inner peace.

A peculiar prong
spreads on the bushy path.
Which offers violent weapon to a person
and snatches his all artistic means.

On the other hand-

The frozen blackberry
is eagerly awaiting for sunbathe.
Its branch shakes
with wavy wind increase.

So, search the door of calmness
in nature’s lap.
You’ll feel a fresh warmth of love
which is itself a masterpiece.”____
