6. Below is the finished poem as I would like it for IBPC


Dusk

Let us walk, hand in hand,
when shadows
stretch across the land
like a black cat
waking from its lethargy.
Let us walk
along soothing paths
of Night
who lays her cool lips
on our scars.

Night saturated with silences.
Neither veil nor falsehood:
breezes waft fragrances
of white roses
on that predictable pinewood;
I foresee the fistful of earth,
I know the limit
that dusk intimates.

Let us walk: night is soon.
For a few instants,
still,
reality will be dissolved
under the tepid providence of the moon.

Lullaby

She bore the days
trailing from her waist
like a child's paper chain

the way the moon
indentures the waves:
night after night
dragged by the hair across
a sea that rocks
its dead like a mother.

When she'd had enough
She slipped into the tub,
and closed her eyes
For the last time against

The same mad grief
they say made God
drown the world.

Original poem
unpublished elsewhere - not representing another Forum




Dwindling Warmth and Comfort of Our Days'

Birds, dented and off course.
Men on porches, rough as goats.
My face stern as a warden
guarding inmates.

Did I mention my wife died?
She loved Barcelona and painted
Under rain faded cork trees,
Bright colors of a child’s crayon.

Her touch wore white gloves,
She drank Dubonnet with me.
Her sundress clean and stiff
As a girl at first Communion.

I am not able to sleep at night.
Not that I sleep during the day.
The drifting clutter of low voices
like a poorly tuned radio.

Dusk comes on. Winter solstice
drops down.
Already I'm the oldest person
I know by first name.

Many people have strong links and working on social media as its working for many one. The matter of support is real require on such working and performance. The process of bestessays review is real needy and requires one for good going ahead.
