The Coming

The Coming

A Poem by Gee
"

Silently it reaps

"
O'er bowed down yellow daffodils
through chiming blue bell seas,
'cross fields of gamboling new life
blows a chill, uneasy breeze.
That whispers of a coming
that has ne'er been seen before,
and will leave the streets deserted
as folk cower behind closed door.
For this coming will be misery,
will be heartache, sudden deaths
as it preys upon the elderly
reaping wantonly last breaths...

a plague which is akin to biblical proportions; so many ideas as to how it came to be and some of them very frightening .....

Hello Gee. ... Bravo!
.... this both beautifully crafted and has a fluid rhythm... you have managed to meld visual beauty with wrenching reality... albeit a surreal kind of reality.
S true pleasure to read.

Woahh... an anticipatory poem. "Uneasy breeze" is right. You set the mood of this poem excellently, I feel... "uneasy" reading it. So- good job! I hope you are well in this confusion whirlwind of contamination, social media, and statistics.

It’s so eerie that this pestilence will come to smite us, traveling over yellow daffodils, blue seas and golden meadows. And what it shall leave in its wake is death and devastation. It’s so profound, so disturbing! Door delivery of death! Wow!

I really like this, the words like "o'er" and "ne'er" that you used really added a depth to the poem for me. I really enjoy your work, you're an extremely good writer.
