Black Hole Of The Mountain Top


Silent
..fog
....eases
......in...
Enveloping
..softening
....jagged
......boulders

on a mountain top

Silence
..descends
....deep
......into my ways

Numbing
..away
....caustic
. .....pain

of hollow victories

Burried
..deep
....vapid
......vapors

Lockout
..Sun's
... .rays
......black hole

massive attack of heart

    I enjoyed that guy too, I was sorry to not leave my poems when I left for a time but oh well a little elbow grease and I was back in loving it. (Report) Reply

    MV, thanks for poem note. i guess you enjoyed charles's presence. i like the physical shape of the poem, and the vapid/vapors. all-in-all interesting and maybe soothing? i did wonder at the end if there was an emotional loss or a heart attack being mentioned. check spelling of boulders. thanks for sharing. bri
    i also wonder what the hollow victories refers to....another subject for a poem perhaps? i did not know of c.r.james. and can anyone tell me what veeraiyah refers to with this poetry session? thanks (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
