    Re Heaven.

    Bloody love it Mark. The repetition is well-thought out, the lyricism is truly poetic. But I feel as if you've been watching me in my garden.; ¬) Next time, I'll go cross ways instead of parallel.

    I see you are a biologist. Makes total sense. I recently graduated with a BS in bio. Ever read a collection of science poems Radial Symmetry? You should publish your poetry. You have a really great style.

Best Poem of Mark R Slaughter

It's Death Again

It's Death again - He's always there -
Watching, waiting - e'er the stare!
Every time I look behind
Or reach to pull the window blind,
I catch a glimpse of grubby hood -
A little clue to where he stood;
The glint of light that caught the scythe.
Perhaps if I could pay a tithe…
But O! no use, he'll never go.
The adamant phantom; don't you know
He will but wait until it's time
For me to hear His fateful chime? -
The toll that claims my destiny,
To Hail: 'You're next, it has to be…'

Read the full of It's Death Again

Death, Inevitable Death

Death, inevitable Death.
So now You come to show Your world,
Hence the blackened cloak – unfurled.
And peering down upon my form
– Bereft of pity – Your eyes of storm.

Death, inexorable Death.
‘When? ’ The only question out of Thee.
My dream retorts 'But ne’er for me! ’

[Hata Bildir]
