Confronted - dVerse Poetics

Defeated by straying 
Fill in the whole entity
Falter then stutter
Words gibber, 
Hum and haw.

No promised day
No cherished memory
How the presence,
Seem so continuance.
Approaching snake, stealthily
Without warning.

This is submitted to dVerse Poetics 
in which we may use the beautiful art of

  1. a rather abstract write too...though i feel the weight of it...in the no promised day, no cherished memory.

  2. I didn't get the image, but enjoyed you poem a lot. It seems like it would go well with some of her more abstract art.

  3. I see this is a popular abstract painting ~

    There is something sinister about the snake approaching without warning ~ The feeling of being in a corner in defeat is what I get from your post ~

    Thanks for participating and wishing you Happy Week ~

  4. There are some really charming contrasts here.. The snake - temptator or threat? Like it a lot..
