"A Castle in the Time of Nature" - Poem of Strength

I have written and published many poems all my life, including a self-published poetry book.

"A Castle in the Time of Nature"

In the time of nature, this castle stands strong.

The walls whisper stories of ghosts from the past.

Ancient souls once erupted in a literary song.

Crumbling bricks cling tight to the life they prolong.

Still, even as they seem to slip away fast,

In the time of nature, this castle stands strong.

Centuries of traveling hearts find where they belong

Through all celebration in this castle, where amassed

Ancient souls once erupted in a literary song.

From these visible wounds, beauty emerges all along

The surrounding edges like a grassy ocean so vast,

Within the time of nature as this castle stands strong.

Under a clear sky, above shadows of a dancing throng,

Bare trees in the midst of a stone sea, outlast

Where ancient souls once erupted in a literary song.

The etched fortress makes us feel free and never wrong.

Our curiosity breaks apart the partitioned glass

In the time of nature, where this castle stands strong,

And the air of ancient souls whom once erupted in a literary song.
