Within his Eye

Within his cold eye he saw the future What facts are presented, of which he’s sure Death is imminent, which is surely real He fails to look beyond, he fails to kneel Only he can see the truth of this day Ending of life will come to his dismay Shouldering all this news he hangs his head The image of the skull will leave one dead Striking is the sight within the cold eye Emptiness exudes fear one can’t deny Reality plays its chord, who’ll listen There’s no speed given so do not hasten The skull’s in his eye, symbol of the end He must not harbor hate nor him depend

    the death he saw we do deplore, but only the messengers action, sign of the skull and the face it bore, no sadness or satisfaction, i have been given the message too, Charley could be dead by monday, told old Crab, the word came true, heart attack, buried on sunday, a beer on the bar we left for him, when we drank to him, that one day:( Don thank you Russell Sivvey "Within his Eye"

    you did a good job with sonnet form on this one, Russell. That contest did not quite inspire me but it's really cool to see how you took the challenge and came up with one on the skull picture!!
