    dotsHouse of Cardsdots
    -------------------------------------------


    The night is razor cold and bleak,
    Through the elms the gray storm passes,
    Harries leaves and reeds and grasses.
    I am weak.

    Weak as a fragile dried out weed
    Above the frozen lake at dusk,
    Iím just an empty hollow husk,
    Dead reed.

    And with old age my hopes have thinned,
    Each hope that starts it seems to stall,
    And like a house of card will fall,
    In wind.

    Now winter storms, without delay,
    Come with the icy, killing snow
    And like the leaves that fly I blow
    Away.

      The flow and the imagery was amazing and constant. This poem makes the heart ache, but i couldn't tare my eyes away. I loved the image of the card house falling in the wind. Absolutely fantastic!

      This is a very nice poem. I have seen this exact structure used by our best poet with great success in one of his pieces. Is this a special form of poetry? Like an old style that at some time was widely used? Or did you just write it that way?

      It seems an almost strange switch between the outdoor setting and the card setting. The first stanzas did set it up though; I could feel the tension rising in the words before that exact line. This did finish the picture nicely, however, with the last stanza. It was beautifully done, the description of the feeling without the spelled out meaning.

      The cold winds blow, and the time comes when we just
    "ceaseto be"; or, do we? Nah!

    Up from the cold wind, out the icy dust
    arises a tired, but ruthless soul
    and sword to wind
    does thrust!

    We can't have none of this "blowin away stuff"!

    We need you around here!!

    Excellent write, my talented friend! Grim as the reaper, this!!

      Sad sad sad. Makes me think of my grandad. Lovely piece, but depressing. I always hated winter.

    peace
