Broken Pieces


Rainy grey days, appears like the sky is falling down,
All around the mystical splendour of Killeen Castle,
Horses grazing on it's fine fertile pastures,
........................

    A beautiful write.....so long as the joys of life outnumber the pain, so long as pain teaches us something, we've lost nothing and gained much - compassion and empathy are two of pain's gifts! I truly enjoy your work! (Report) Reply

    It's painful to see the inevitable coming early in the poem and then it being obvious and unavoidable at the ending. At the very least though, you got a good poem out of it. (Report) Reply

    The intensity in the poem reveals the feelings the poetess had at the time of writing it. Very deep and touching Hazel. Marvelous wording and the imagery is of high qualities. Well done Hazel. (Report) Reply

    Celt versus Celt, maybe the outcome was predetermined. Well expressed I shall try some of your other work. Thankyou. (Report) Reply

    What a summit of poetic expressions! These broken pieces have made this piece a real literary gem of the kind. Nostalgic and lost in sweet reminiscences you have really re assembled a thing of beauty. (Report) Reply

    wow.......so many picture have been depicted by Hazel in piece of Art, contrasting scense magically play with reader perceptions.... stanza one is full of Romance and the last lines sing a melancholy strain...........
    gradually withdrawal from an ancient castle
    (definitely some one as poet's notes explained) to something deserted heartland,
    the gliding is smooth and touching, the dictions fully justify the appropriate feelings,
    .... I withdrew into my shell,
    Wishing I were you, losing sight of me,
    The view was always you,
    and this one........ The only foes were ourselves,
    Doe eyed, became wild eyed,
    great work Hazel, , , , , , , , , very poignant (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
