factorizing fear ---Poetry on Thursdays
The travelling poetry show is being hosted by Carolee of The Polka Dot Witch Blog. The theme for this Thursday was Confront The Fear.
confounding thoughts as ominous as night.
mysterious clouds camouflage moonlight.
necropolis is calm extenuating that end.
explore around, you might find a friend.
tombstones covered with mossy grime-
disintegrating with passing of time.
lifeless corpses recline in damp graves.
with epitaph “in death, he is saved.”
only remnants of those long since dead;
are carved stones, placed at their head.
in this austere place, misery is released;
all journey into intangible, eternal peace.
I stare standing, head bowed down,
longing to sleep in quiet underground.
What better way to confront the fear other than in the graveyard. This is a re-worked poem from the archives.
Next week's host is jillypoet, the prompt being uncorked---uncork whatever you want and pour it out into your next poem..
