Bone damp silence pervades
A dark winter's night
On the streets of Dublin
Old tired bones rustle under cardboard
Dank smells of human neglect
Of excrement, sweat and hunger
No joyous laughter here
Just desperation, pain
And lonliness

    Liz,, Stopping by to greet you and every other soup poet, with a special thank you comment, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*

    excellent...I've been wondering what an "imagism" poem was all about! Thanks Julie Heckman

    Sounds like neglect and overwhelming movement of cant in the midst of riches. Liz, you are a born Irish poet

    Quite a pathetic sketch of silence. Nice sad write. I will read the other two also and then I would make any comment. My good wishes for the New Year. Love and best wishes....Ravindra...Liz Walsh
