Listen to poem:
up in her tower in a sequence of forevers sure she hears she sees she feels she breaks fast with the best of them then on through the day she’ll do what she must till she welcomes the night and the moon in its wake the scatter of stars in a sky made of onyx goes stagnant swayed by a tide without malice she understands in the utterness of silence she understands naught but bitterness and sorrow as it drifts in beached and bleached alone and in defeat onto the sands at her feet AP: Honorable mention 2022 Submitted on January 1, 2022 for contest IN CONVERSATION WITH OUR SOUL sponsored by UNSEEKING SEEKER - RANKED 8TH

Beautifully penned sadness 'beached and bleached alone and in defeat onto the sands at her feet'. I could feel her pain, and almost feel the sand beneath her feet as she walks along in her sorrow. This is an amazing poem.

Line, the way you use words is artistry. The sadness, against this beautiful backdrop...like nature is trying to speak... and the surprise, the contrast, between the title and then the conclusion. Bravo! FAV
