Return of the shadow – the poem

Updated on August 23, 2012
Source

A day was hanging on

from the naked branch of

a torn calendar,

A zero watt bulb was

Waiting for the dusk to step

down from hanger.

Silhouette sun is there

And some burnt ash

Of crumbling memory,

For the past was little

Diluted of vision for tears

were flowing ebony.

Source

Some empty crescendo

Engulfing my breathing

With white soft petals,

Seventh heaven was

Drifting the essence as

sense turned to crystals.

So much discord in the

Eternity to freedom

for agony herald,

A complete resonance

Without core at the

Day break for a stroke,

In the heart of heart

Known fact lies clear

No retort swells choke.

Source

………………………………………………..

Heaven knew the truth

Go away dear

As much you hope,

Your shadow will return

To me for sure

when dusk will rope.

My arms will open wide

To embrace the

Tired shadow,

The zero watt bulbs will

Shine bight to climb

the furrow.


Source

Death engulfed me

With petals of white crystal

When a day embraced

the dusk.

Life herald agony history

For death is

mesmeric mystery,

Sand watch tickled the

Crumbling ash of the

dusk to mingle with trance ebony.

Some sand and golden sun

Dinning and winning

As sense goes to change the

Calendar page !!!!!!

All readers who take time off to comment on the works are very valuable indeed for every writer of any sort. But the way tried to feel the inherent emotion in the poem is really great. Nice to have you as my friend. Thanks once again.

      I am so happy to know that your poetry is ecclectic. I see you often use a rhyme scheme, but here i love that you did not. The flow seems so much more natural with the words you chose here. Beautiful message and composure. I love the image of the torn calendar and the poet building the strength to leave behind the past month and move on to the next. Change and moving on is an everyday obstacle. Great poem dghbrh, well done yet again!
