Poem

The silent pictures hanging

in vivid flashes of black and white;

A hundred fading figures

of a million epic tales.


Each beautiful moment, frozen in a frame

--- a snapshot of a timeless jewel;

Even that time when darkness reigned,

images were bound with iron hold.


The torture of the oppressed and

remains of a battlefield,

are as worthy of a reminiscent

as the parade of the victor

when the beacon was ignited.


The cries of a fallen soldier,

the scars of the lone survivor,

holds as much significance as

the union of two old lovers and

birth of one new fighter.


Thy banner be waving in war or in glory,

A flag caging the flames or unleashing the fire,

Fall hard to the doom and bounce back even higher

--- it's all preserved for the eye of the beholder.


When the day comes and my mind fogs,

My mind filled with forgotten stories,

The photographs in my wall,

Will have these chronicles reborn.

WaywardKnight3: I liked this poem overall. It brought up a lot of thoughts to me about our place in the world and the place of the things around us. Plus I am proud to be of Scando lineage and perhaps that has a part to play in my enjoyment. Either way good work.

preety_lady_serenity: I really liked the poem. It created this picture of a baroque style cafe that you kind of enter it to feel relaxed and yet you feel trapped due to outside circumstances.I especially loved the writing style, If one looks at it, it does look like a birdcage which is an excellent image to fit the po...
