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

    I enjoyed that guy too, I was sorry to not leave my poems when I left for a time but oh well a little elbow grease and I was back in loving it. (Report) Reply

    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

    Yes, gentle and soothing were his poems! We all miss him! You have put in your sense of loss in poignant language, Thomas. Well done! ! (Report) Reply

    I hope he will come back soon. This poetry session may end in a few weeks, then we shall start again fair and fresh. To Charles.,10+++ (Report) Reply
