A Lowering Day

Rating: 3.7
Sometimes on lowering days I think of you
And watch the clouds create your Slavic face.
True poetry is ageless I am told,
But those who pen it are as frail as smoke.

The gray sound of an Appalachian bell
Rings in the rare gift of another year.
Your work has gone beyond the calendar,
A bright thought that exceeds all imagery.
Trees weave intricate patterns upon dusk.

Your verse resounds - Gray sounds lowering days, but the ancient bells sound, evoking memory and hope; the clouds are great image makers, those that weave intricate patterns are makers of wonderful imagery -a lovely experience

Your exquisite poem evokes so many feelings, Sandra. A little sadness, peacefullness, nostalgia... I especially love the last two lines. This one is a 10 for sure. Have a wonderful day. Ron

A poem that shows the natural downfall of time but still with a little hope for an ageless poet in its essence. The true poets with their limitless thoughts still uprise from the time-bound age and last forever. Even in a lowering day their words remain intact. Very beautiful poem Ms. Sandra..........10/10 Best Regards........Sameer
