Broken Webs
When this fine web is truly broken,
And souls fly free into the sun
And we stand accountable for all words spoken
Where are you then, my trusted one?

When all that man desires is plundered,
And brought out into empty air for view;
When all that love can hold as treasured
Will you hold all I thought I knew?

And, as the hour glass is emptied
And lawns grow gold before the setting sun;
Will you hold me to your rising star?
So safe, secure...
My treasured

An excellent reminder that we are all accountable for our actions one day. As we hang from delicate strands in this intricate web of life it's wiser to live a good life than the good life. Great write stormwolf.

Today I heard your voice for the first was the first audio I've ever listened to here, your poem, "Hell Can Wait". I am positive hearing you read has strengthened the connection I've always felt with you. this was delightful to hear, the tone and emphasis of voice make a HUGE difference than just reading it.


Wonderful voice, wonderful Lady D I am in poetry heaven! =))

I have been here long enough I have probably said this to you before but I'll say it again. This is my all time favorite of yours. It surpasses any that I liked before (and there have been many) but this one really moved me AND it's a rhymer, which if done right (and not all cheesy) is true poetry. This one was done soooo right. Love it.

it is so nice to hear your lilting voice that matches so lovely with your deep words.  this is art.  you always make us think...take a look back and then face forward to the future.  i like the reminder that we stand accountable for our words as well as deeds....and as the hour glass is emptied...lawns grow gold before the setting sun...
