    :-D Hi ILS,
    Just thought of posting another poem.Waiting for your comments.
    Warm regards,
    Reeja :wave


    WINTER DAWN


    Winter dawn....Tulips....Pyre song,
    Blind Atropes cuts the thread again
    Soul's departure-life's eternal retreat.
    There the hysteriac woman with a mandoline-
    Plays the tune of a nuptial song
    And it merges with the hoggish cry of a vulture!
    Hyacinth....Amaranth....Bluebells...
    It's aroma has carried away by
    Death - the burning corpse....
    Fire embraces the body- still craves more
    And spitts out curling smoke in return
    Vision fades, ashes form....
    Yet again there the nuptial song........
    Hair loosen,yelling out
    Away from the Yew tree,from the Ash
    She stands before the crematorium -
    Silhoutted against the dawn sky...
    ...But the song reechoes - the nuptial song.

    Whoa! What an image you put forth in this Reeja. The cycle of life and death and other emotions - very well captured and my thinking goes on and on. Nice to read. Thanks. -rgs
