From The Womb Of Fire, A Time Of Reprisal (12)

Rating: 5.0

Mavros, the first dweller of this earth, lone
Warrior born from the fires of chaos, scarred,
Burned by lava rock, his meteor eyes shone
With crushing intelligence, footed for war,
Exemplified by every circling star;
Rivers and forests lain prone, life saturated,
Counting ages, mingling time, understood
The dreadful silence of the coming flood
That would tint the oceans with all of mankind's blood.

A time of reprisal, a triumph for evil

But love survives beneath a tattered veil When clarity of thought softens the mind. Where does the true gem of compassion hide? a great poem indeed. tony

An indictment on our war torn world. Is this blighted landscape where we're heading? I like the note of hope at the end. A great series! ng

Your closing composition is beautiful. But love survives beneath a tattered veil When clarity of thought softens the mind And oft one thinks perhaps to no avail; Where does the true germ of compassion hide Replicating itself beneath the monolith of time?
