Tinker Posted November 14, 2010 Share Posted November 14, 2010 Attempting to write examples for the verse forms I've researched and included at, Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry. My latest example poem, a tripod, not always high poetry but honing the skills. Brothers Bonded by boredom punctuated with fear, born in a Humvee rattling through some Stone Age village called Amrut. Weapons aimed while scruffy children play in rubble from yesterday's air strike. Young soldiers in Kevlar watch shadows. No wheat fields or big city subways, the only thing like home is the guy next to you. Only he has your back. ---Judi Van Gorder Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
