Oracle

Oracle

A Poem by Krithika Raghavan
"

What does a soothsayer see?

"

Embers embedded in the future

 

So much that the present is blur

 

The crystal clear premonitions

 

That the oracle envisions

 

Foretells a dark haunting story

 

Sights the slow gradual entry

 

The oracle girl's eyes are as light as breath

 

Her voice was melodious, "I see Death..."

ahh... the future holds something.. i know that... but we don't have to know right... even death we know we all go there... future telling are guides but definitely not our fortune or our future... everything changes depending on what you choose to... fate, chances and coincidence may come along but as long as you are firm of your choices and dreams... then you have a long way to go...

Haunting last line! :) And I love the line "light as breath."
Woah, that poem is... short?! ...It feels long... I have no idea how I missed how short it was! Anyways, I like it better short :)
You have a lot of good imagery and... haunting-ness here!
