The Dance of Death

Misty dawn opens its arms
Silent street not a sound
Flowers spread some exotic charm
Honey bees all over abound
A sinister killer is just around
The silent streets weave and dance
The trees rap in a mystical trance
Bridges collapse to the music of seismic waves
They burn, they crumple, not a chance
As exotic flowers swing on lonesome graves


By Tahera Mannan

For Nette’s “Let’s dance” contest

    Reading this reminded me of the short story "By the Waters of Babylon" by the late Stephen Vincent Benet. This is a fine example of a dizain poem.
