August Stanza 14

It is August and so Jane is doing : a chain of images each one suggested by the last word in the preceding poem. They’ll be short, a single image of just a few lines. It will be interesting to see where it ends up by the end of the month.

Kat will be doing short 3,4, or 5 line poems no syllable counts of rhymes, starting with the word ‘August’ on the first day. The last word of the poem will be the first word of day two’s poem, and so on until the end of the month.

Finally I shall be doing all types of poetry but each poem will start with the last word in the preceding poem.

Today’s poem is a Pantoum

Derail

Derail, a sudden silence fell

All twisted metal and acid smoke

The every day decsended into hell

Fear in the throats and all will choke.

——–

All twisted metal and acrid smoke

Body parts strewn around

Fear in the throats and all will choke.

From explosion to silence, no sound.

——

Death comes to claim spoils

Body parts strewn around

Fire ignites and oil boils

From explosion to silence, no sound.

——

Body parts strewn around

From explosion to silence, no sound

The every day decsended into hell

Derail, a sudden silence fell

    Very vivid, well-crafted poem, Willow. I could see and smell the acrid smoke from this tragedy. 😱💙

    Brave choice, Willow. Pantoums are difficult. This one worked well.
