Omen Of Emptiness

Rating: 2.7

The clock has turned enough
to reach a planet
Life is endless night
I hear wings beating in
the dark of my room
A giant Raven is waiting –


for me to fall asleep.

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

I favor this kind of poetry. Whimsical and humorous have their place in life- but not mine at the moment. This fits right in. Tomorrow maybe the light-hearted will be more than welcome. That is the cool thing about literature- there is a flavor for every person for every mood for every journey.

Cryptic yet soothing; the poet struck a sweet balance here.

Seems like a poem depicting the dark sides of life but with a wry humour.

I do not find this poem humourous or light hearted. The title of the poem aptly indicates what the poem is about - an emptiness in waiting, perhaps an eternal emptiness. 'I hear wings beating in the dark of my room A giant Raven is waiting – for me to fall asleep' - a poetic indication of an impending emptiness! Congratulations to the poet, posthumously, for his poem's selection as the 'Modern Poem of the Day'!

Life is endless night! - great philosophical life; life is endless journey; yes, no need to stop in a certain age or certain receiving of desired things; life is unstoppable ways of discovering; many darkness and lights will come on the ways of this life just need to conquer it by the true welfare knowledge
