Call to Thought

Call to Thought

A Poem by Tracie Skarbo

 

Distant voices
Haunted thought
Happiness fades
Innocence is sought
 
Light of the candle
Heat of the flame
Keeper of my heart
My soul yours to tame
 
Whisper of the wind
Calls out its tale
Dogs of the night
Let out their lonely wail
 
Time has no limit
Silence rules
The world…

Chosen this one from your collection at random. A really good piece of work.
Just a little concerned about the Keeper of my . . . (the two lines) I feel that this introduces another human party into it; this reduces the poem's universality and so makes us, the readers, outsiders rather than sharers. It is hard to think that the poet is talking to some Geatic presence. Sharers are what we are in all of the rest of the poem except for these two lines. Perhaps keeper et. should form another sort of poem?
Some might argue that it introduces a romantic element into an otherwise existential poem. (That is quicker)
Just a thought.
Any Haiku lying around?

Such beautiful glimpses of the world in each line. There is a sense of sacred nightfall, sensual moments, depth of thought and profound reflection. So well done!

Tigra,
This is what I call a "Sigh read". Read with the hint of a whisper, and it is dreamy, lovely and so satisfying. You have a wonderful way of reaching in and bringing out the interior of your soul. Few can do that. They skate the edge, but never the interior. Another wonderful piece. *Sigh*

This has a lovely rhyme and flow. It is intriguing and open to interpretation. Hard to choose a favorite line or verse as it blends so well together and also, I think depends on my mood when I read it. Thanks for sharing.
