My heart was stopped beside the mill, Waterfalls, empty pail Beyond the barn, in the grim shadows Bottled like a plan with no purpose Broken glass under each stone The wind blew dark raven plumes The floor with no sign or face Waterfalls, empty pail A wide shade appears, Grey shadows crossing beyond the barn Blood drips from each wind generator blade Stoned with no drift SandyIvy 12-5-15

The gloomy feelings of your heart and mind appear to be dominating all over this lovely sad write dear friend. A full 7+ for this beautiful but sad write. If it's a reflection of some disturbing feelings I would pray that you recover, as after darkness the dawn of hopes lies just ahead of you. Love and best wishes Sandy..Ravindra K Kapoor

The abstruse emotions that breathe darkly in this poem make me feel sensitive to storm in your heart Sandy. "The wind blew dark raven plumes..." Mmm...electric weather therein. I enjoy the undefined pressure in this poem...J.A.B.

SandyIvy, Thank you for thinking I need a cold shower. HaHa. Stopping by to read your suicidal poem. Joking, I love the dark imagery going on. I have two ways interpreting this poem. At first I thought the Grim reaper came to collect you and take you home after a countryside heart attack OR this poem reads a painful heartbreak that can't pass on. Anyway, whichever it is. IT's freaking awesome. Love SKAT
