REVISITING MY POEM, PHANTASY

I posted my poem, Phantasy, on poetreecreations.org ( they changed the title) and got a pretty good response so I thought I’d repost it for those new to my blog.

Perhaps you might be induced to check some of my other poems.

First published by New Worlds Unlimited in 1981.

PHANTASY

Sickness pervades this cloistered sphere

this world he calls his own.

Mutterings leap with meanings unclear

crying a message unknown.

Shadowy thoughts revoke the day

God gave his hand, then turned away.

Come see the shell that isn’t a man,

muse at this poor wretched fool.

Look to his eyes a moment and then

Depart his mad vestibule.

Here’s a link to the posting by poetreecreations.org.
