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.

Dark, ravishing, chilling tale of fantastic imagery, the end of the world. Another Strong, powerful, 10,000 volts Sami deliverance from the poetry throne!

It does seem like that is where the earth is heading. So many still fighting, old time dominions no longer even there. No country's size the same. No telling where man will strike next. Very much truth in this write Sami. Valentine

End to end amazing imagery. Honestly, you don't even have to post that graphic, the poem itself paints a vivid image. Also beautiful vocabulary. Thank you for sharing it.
