    Walt Martin is one of the most authentically talented poets I have encountered on this site. He is a craftsman of the first order who takes the greatest pride in his work. My best guess is that it doesn't get posted until it's received the full treatment: the most exacting care over words, phrasing, metre, and rhyme forms of every description. The content is usually weighty and its treatment displays a fine balance between high intellect, and emotional depth and maturity. As of this comment he has posted only seven poems, but I suspect there is a considerable hinterland of work filed away somewhere, and hopefully some of it will be posted soon.

The Tree With Roots In Hell

There is a place,
in timeless space,
where the dead do reign -
held captive by ethereal chain.

I know this place,
in timeless space,
and its tree for hanging of centuries past;
with earth held spirits long held fast.

Hope perches and flits to flight,
limb to limb throughout the night.
Hate flows as mist... vaporous evil snake;
Step back in haste, least it's bonds to break!

Dreams... Shattered remnants illuminate bright,
Floating spheres drift, eyes with empty sight;
Love moans lost, ...
