The Grand Abyss

Rating: 4.8
Finally now, we see below us
The abyss over which we have traveled
All these years the whisper- thin
Web of our imagining
Between us and destruction,
Mere shreds of no meaning

Wondering with increasing fascination
What's down there when we fall?
As we all must fall - and land
Is it more of the same - but harsher?

Flying high high over the sky the mind is ground waiting with the power of gravitational power will all flying wings there the highest stair steps of flying and here the severe grand dark abyss one day all flying souvenir will be in abysmal oblivion

Envisions only broken threads Where the others fell through The silence of the air With no breath of a whisper.....it's tone of sadness of life; lament feelings on this earthly life; written well on connotations of life; we rise and we fall; we take birth and we die; we are growing up and naturally decaying same way; this poem is very acutely described the pathos of life; congrats for being selected this poem as POD... rating from me 5*****

To the last measure the mind Spins out it's boundless fancy And though we say cease it does not cease Envisions only broken threads breath of a whisper and the silence of the air. a very fine poem. tony

'Wondering with increasing fascination What's down there when we fall? As we all must fall - and land Is it more of the same - but harsher? ' Such questions come to my mind also. Congratulations on the poem's selection as the MPOD.

Indeed, our precious fabric of thought and feeling stretches over the abyss. This is the element in which we have our being. We need our imagination to keep working, so we can orient ourselves. When it stops connecting us to possibility and reality, we will dwindle away Thanks for your admirable insight.

This is a poem that wonders what it would be like once in that place hint by the lines of the poem. It is like we live wandering and then comes a pause when we are near the end. How is it down there?
