COZY CASTLE A Poem by BEN NAGA

Poem by Ben Naga

COZY CASTLE

Out in the black a tiny spark

Blooms into flaming flesh

That flickers, a fiery dancer
Amidst a slowly forming picture
Imagined, improved, approved as
Yes … that castle only dreamt of
Time and effort bring it into view
With towers, turrets, and bartizans
Crenellations atop sturdy walls
A moat and drawbridge, portcullis
A statement of power, of dominion
Protection against any assault
From the envious or less fortunate
Fully equipped with arrow slits
Endless ramparts, battlements
Murder holes and oubliettes
Till in time as will in time all
The tide turns and with a sigh
The sandcastle returns to sand
~ Ben Naga

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. I do like this. Takes me back to child-days and my never-satisfied determination to make my castles realistic.
