This poem is dedicated to another great poet Casarah Nance.

I flew alone in the white winter night Cold winds and ice deep within my weary fright In the night my mind in the darkest of dark Death was close, close to my lonely heart The tomb at the ready Even falling apart Some would say this is fine art Or better yet Art at his finest… Wrapped in winters black roped plaque All I wanted was to lie down and rest In peace and upon a widows breast For then we could know each other Pains shared, blood expressed Oh Cassandra You are an angel divine Winters mist and love sublime Umbrellas to shield us from our earthly fears Of natures whims and weather so ghastly grim I turn my head, staring into the past Your breasts of life make me gaze on back When I was the raven Flying noble and high Now all I see are empty dark skies

Darkness and lonely hearts combine to make this a truly lovely poem; Arthur...the author who signs between the lines (reminding me of Caravaggio signing his name where blood oozed...). ~ Regards // paul

Well thank you my friend, my muse has been ... well... smothered in ash of yesterday... but your write empowers me to reach for my pen and bleed the darkened ink of my soul. I love how you feed the raven in me. hugs

Ah but from ashes comes art!

Such a dark and dreary piece though it carries a beauty that touches us deep inside as we read. This is a masterpiece, I enjoyed every line of this poem. Very nicely done.

Fantastic tribute! This is something I'd like to write so much, I am awed. And I smiled at these two lines: "Some would say this is fine art..//.. Or better yet Art at his finest…"
