The Castle under Raising

The castle is built on a pile of skulls,
What greets the builder, the castle lord,
Skulls grow into a mountain his world,
The agony of skulls forms his castle.

The agony of skulls is a torturing past,
What fell into the well of oblivion.
Ghosts are swinging here from there,
Their torment carries the life of the castle lord.

The castle is built on a pile of skulls,
What is traversed by host of ghosts,
The agony of skulls is relieved by the heaven:
From them is built the Tower of Silence.

Castle under raising of the Tower of Silence:
The same fate awaits the castle lord,
And that he rather does not it behold,
It does not affect the Tower of Silence.

There is time: while it comes, the Tower sees out silent.

I’m a teacher and a registered author either, at Artisjus as a writer and a poet in Hungary. I love forests, butterflies, flowers.


    1. I agree with you. But it represents our lives as we live blind, augmenting the false power of men. And it also is a symbol of the ultimate power that makes us humans all equal: Mors Imperator that is Death Imperator. And it always is chilling, frightening. I devoted this poem for a soul-stirring writing.
