A Dual With The Raven

STAND At the spiraling raven hour, At the twilight brink of being. A last dual, she bids. Assured and slender as the moment, The clutch of time in her callous grip. Afore her, primordial souls boil and rise, in the fog of forgetting, in the void of vanquished knowing. GAZE Into her sapphire pools of temptation, Into the sibylline face of fatality. Cumulous ruminations dispirit the sky, Shiver redemption's luminescence. FIRE Into the nebulous of night, Into the abyss of life's becoming. In mortality's slipping seconds, A silent burning breath... OUT-DRAWN * By Scott Ree * For Constance ~ A Rambling Poet's "Among The Dead" members contest

    I had only read a couple of the poems and wanted so badly to enter but...too many things were going on and didn't get to. I knew Constance would have a time selecting her winners. There is a long list of winners here. You should be so proud of your winning poem congratulations Scott. Love, Carol

    thanks, Scott. I thought it "sounded" better to the ear, so I will change to that. Luv, Andrea

    wow, this reads SO COOL, Scott. Very different from many of the others I've seen. I love the simple look of it, which makes me want to read it too. Say, some advice for me? I am thinking it might sound better to say "Reflecting" instead of "I reflect" at the end of that haiku series. Yet I want it to be clear it is "I" and not just the sky on the water. Do you think one way sounds better than the other? Andrea
