ephemeral eyes


light my way at dusk's first blush


they close





silken thread binds lair


taught in drops of winter


beauty lies near death

      This is the type of poetry I have always been drawn to. Wonderful images and minimal words. Beautiful my friend.

      Short and sweet. A new kind of Haiku, perhaps?

      You have the wonderful ability to create pictures with just a few, very significant words, Audrey. Thank you for sharing your lovely work.

      I love "Beauty lies near death"

      another classic show stopper...

      I read powerful contrast but i'd love to know your interpretation of the poem.

      Brilliantly approached and I like the way you expressed deep emotions

      If I am not wrong, the first part deals with the passage of a soul and the second with the eternal rest. This is only my guess as I love to peep into the psyche of poems though it is not always correct. Nonetheless, the title of poems speaks it all. Great poetry ! Voted up.

      Beautiful poetry Audrey-I see this as the universal message of death. Death of the seasons, Death of the day into night and death that comes to all of us. Death and Renewal is the cycle of life. Sharing this all over including pinning it.

      I read your poem and began reading the 'copyright' line as part of the poem. lol The poem was very interesting and awesome. Let me guess, it was the thoughts of a bug which was caught in a spider's web? It was beautiful, Audrey, whatever it was. I voted it up, shared an Pinned it.
