Black Hole Of The Mountain Top


Silent
..fog
....eases
......in...
Enveloping
..softening
....jagged
......boulders

on a mountain top

Silence
..descends
....deep
......into my ways

Numbing
..away
....caustic
. .....pain

of hollow victories

Burried
..deep
....vapid
......vapors

Lockout
..Sun's
... .rays
......black hole

massive attack of heart

    MV, thanks for poem note. i guess you enjoyed charles's presence. i like the physical shape of the poem, and the vapid/vapors. all-in-all interesting and maybe soothing? i did wonder at the end if there was an emotional loss or a heart attack being mentioned. check spelling of boulders. thanks for sharing. bri
    i also wonder what the hollow victories refers to....another subject for a poem perhaps? i did not know of c.r.james. and can anyone tell me what veeraiyah refers to with this poetry session? thanks (Report) Reply
