Boneyard of Broken Dreams

Drifting in the shade of Poemhunter's grave
In archive (a kingdom's history) has been made

Stepping on the bleached bone parade of dreams
Crunching fragments of sentenced themes

Epitaphs of honor, comments to poets 2009
Poems laid bare of praise lost in time

Great poems whose eyes were never shed
In a broken aspiration now dead

Crunch, crunch, The landscape littered 2006
Oh what sacred feeling not forthwith

Here! Lay my poems to rest here
In 2012 my poems of yesteryear

    Sir, if anyone tries to write epitaphs of honor, he is dishonoring himself too.Time will tell, what is immortality.I'm sure about it. A great work. This one won't be lost in time.Kudos! (Report) Reply

    We pass a roadside of words
    Magnificent countryside
    We will stop
    Take in the view
    Have a picnic with friends

    Into the city, busy with words
    Towering skyscraper
    We climb to the top
    Scour the skyline
    Drinks at the bar, with friends

    Hit suburbia With its rough edgy words
    Man made open space
    We sit on a bench
    Watch the young ones play
    Feed the ducks with friends

    Onto humble villages, quietly whispers words
    A village square
    Stop at one so picturesque
    wonder at the cobbled streets
    Have tea and scones with friends

    We know all these places
    We know them well
    Others will visit
    But do take lots of pictures
    To aid the memory
    And share with friends. (Report) Reply

    Yes I do hope all our words survive, otherwise why would be taking so much time writing them? Here's to a great poem by a fascinating writer, and many more to come, I raise a toast; to infinity and beyond! ;) (Report) Reply

    Your words and all the beautiful poems of all this great poets will never be forgotten. These new poets should have more respect and humility and seek the source of words that reach the hearts. If not, they will fall on the abyss of emptiness. They goes and Poets just remain! ! ! ! !

    We shall all disappear into oblivion, or maybe an overcrowded cyberspace. Before the days of personal computing and the Internet, however, there must have been many treasures which were seen by no-one other than their authors - at least we have, or have had as the case may be, sites like PH which have given us the opportunity to disseminate our treasures. So lets celebrate this privilege and hope that PH will continue to thrive. (Report) Reply

    not only in PH, but everywhere in the world we can find the Boneyard of broken dreams. Some dreams have been buried in one particular place and others, in various continents, even in Moon and other celestial objects where Naza has invested so much of man power and money...Nice poem!
