Aftermath

Linda Lee Lyberg at Charmed Chaos posted a wonderful August Challenge poem for this month’s Casting Bricks.  Her Somonka is in bold, and my completion of it follows. Everyone is welcome to join in with Jilly’s August Challenge in which we write, post and link a half poem for another poet to complete.  There is great stretching of our poetic muscles in the process of collaborative writing, and tremendous fun, too.  Join us!

Sated, my soul rests

bathed in the essence of us

what now, I ask you

head in your hands

no words fill

the immense chasm between us

 

Your cool granite skin

can’t mine veins of marble, those

hardened arteries

(vinegar of my regret)

iron bile obsidian

    Hello All- Bravo to Jilly with a fantastic end to the Somonka I wrote for her Casting Bricks challenge. Fellow Bloggers, you should give it a try- the link is in the reblog. She perfectly captured the emotions with her eloquent words. Thanks Jilly!
