Where the Raven Reigns

There at the gateway
To Heaven or hell
They come 
When their living is done
To eternally sleep
Beneath the black clouds
That seep
Like ink
On a satin white sheet
Where the Raven stands
With a gun in her hand
Long tresses cascading in black
To touch  the back
Of that plume-like gown
Of tiered layers
That fall to the ground


Of in the distance
There in the light
That boarders 
The brink of night
Birds of a feather
Circle together
Screaming their song
Of fright
The Princess of darkness
Surveys her kingdom
There in a sea of mist
Where those stone ships list
Lost souls set adrift
In a picture of---


Written by:  Elaine George
Inspired by the picture
For the contest:  Among the dead

    I must admit I was frightened by the images! That means your imagery is superb! I love this!

    This is a great entry, Lainie, and it's wonderful to see you back on the Soup! I didn't even notice a gun in the woman's hand in the photo, but several contestants have mentioned it so there must be one. And that graveyard certainly does look like "a sea of mist...between darkness and light." Best wishes for success in the contest! Love, Carolyn
