Shadows Of Doom

Foretelling a doomed world.

Shadows Of Doom/By Sami Khalil

Foretelling of a doomed world

Now with bliss of ancient dominions briefly remembered

Uncertain as lamentations of child’s shipwrecked words

Oh, Chroniclers of sonorous bombast and feeble blithe

The sun shan’t see her lofty tabernacle above dusty herds.

 

Time and time again in dwindling of peace witnessed coarse

Where foredoomed spires and domes grieve the fall of lords

No brides to marvel, no bridles of incendiary evil to scythe

While lilting, winds turn dusty fields across the spindrift wards.

 

An overgrown child at heart found to breathe a bit morbid

Where shadows of doom can trace their lost fellows’ sherds

With fits of spells no heartless one can endure the writhe

Bodies lain on darker days to girded vultures and rumpus birds.

You foretell of something felt by many of late, I believe. Your way of writing is like reading one of the old style greats, something kept alive from the roots of time through to modern shifts of tides...beautiful :)

A dark and powerful write, Sir.
I loved this stanza a lot:
Time and time again in dwindling of peace witnessed coarse
Where foredoomed spires and domes grieve the fall of lords
No brides to marvel, no bridles of incendiary evil to scythe
While lilting, winds turn dusty fields across the spindrift wards.

Inspiring poem.

Well done again, you are writing with adventure and true form.
Story lines of childhood games and imagination.

Speechless! People can't see the dark coz it's too dark to see... But you have showed it all with your words.
