Lady of the Lamp – Poem by Robin Ouzman Hislop


Lady of the Lamp Poem by Poem by Robin Ouzman Hislop Lady of the Lamp   Poem by  Robin Ouzman Hislop

Lady of the Lamp.

In soft silt sheen, a luminous
vacuous sphere, sightless
she hangs cowled in white lace
her veiled intent of innocence.

A faceless bubble of glass,
a beacon without a shore,
a satellite from outer space
she over floats the floor.

Phantom nun, moon to her deathless
night, bland lamplight her zombie kiss,
a rustle, dry scratch soft on the face
& darkness in night´s draperies,
where the white lace of her shawls
crawl in cobwebs across the walls.
