#6 Poem a Day

In the Trenches

Thoughts quickly scribbled
on the back of an envelope,
a barrage of tenets
attack the plain.
An attempt to capture
a simple construct,
a voice.

Words rethought
fall victim to the slashing pen,
silent chatter discarded,
bound characters boldly
replace the fallen symbols
to shape ideas into verse.

A battleground, blotched
and torn, valued
as much for what is lost,
as for what is gained.
-----------Judi Van Gorder

I did write two new poems for today but they were just a haiku #46 guns & daisies and an example Minute Poem, Mission For the Queen. They adhere to form and I thought this revised poem would be better to post for today's Poem the Day offering.
