Castle of Love | Thursday Poetry Rally 27

Friday, August 27, 2010

Thanks for the invite to our host Jingle

CASTLE OF LOVE

Blinded through desire
Beaten by race of time
Deaf to the pace of serenity
Moments fade away to rush

Spirits behold of silence
As sun sets on sphere each day
Seek rest within fortress of soul
Find love, find a way home

~RA

I don't create poetry, I create myself,
for me my poems are a way to me.
~Edith Södergran

Keep a poem in your heart.

Rosidah I have only recently seen a new side to you through your Haiku. Now free verse and an extension of that side expands. This was very lovely, the last verse really got me!

I'm in love with this poem! Wonderfully done!

What I liked about this poem is the way the words slide so evenly into each other at each line. The brevity does not take away from the poem. I believe it enhances the beauty.

Very very beautifully written, Rosida... In today's rat race, finding love is indeed like finding a place to live.. in someone's heart...
The title, words, and image are just perfect!!!
