Spider Web

I did not see you

Invisible

Death

Wearing only

Water strung like pearls

Your luring architecture mastered over centuries

A geometric maze

I sit and  wonder how many innocent lives you have taken

So proudly displayed upon your

Mandala patterned streets

Various colored lights of

Blue, red and yellow blushing gold

In the dusky light of dawn

As you take my soul

Memory by memory

Thought by thought

  1. I read your poem this way: with each life taken, death also takes your soul because with each one it’s memory and thought lost. Well? Right now I am very sensitive to this subject since I’ve been writing poetry somehow involving death. Congratulations! It is a great poem you have here.

  2. Wow Seabell you really got my poem. THat is very exciting to me. Sometimes I am not sure that I am getting what I really want people to take away from it. So glad you took time to read it. I really appreciate it. Also, I must say that your blog is wonderful and very inspiring !

  3. Beautiful write ~
