From Beyond the Shallow Grave

August 25, 2008 1 comment

Shallow Grave
    From beyond the shallow grave,
      He came:
        A life beyond life,
          To whisk my soul away,
            Into eternal night.

I wrote this in the late nineties when I was going through a particularly “gothic” phase.

Fragments (Tanka)

August 24, 2008 Leave a comment


Fragments of my life
flit and flutter past me,
Shards of silvered glass
petals on a winter breeze,
Beauty promised, my hands bleed.

Dedicated to those who dare remember their past, only to reawaken it.

A Tanka is a 31 syllable (5-7-5-7-7) poem with one theme/image per line creating an overall emotional or visual impression.
