The news about Brussells airport is just coming in as I compile this post. If anybody mentions anything about ‘good’ religious believers and ‘bad’ religious believers today I will go into orbit.
Back to the mundane and essentially trivial, but at least it’s not killing anybody.
Last week’s challenge, the monotetra was, I thought, a fun one—poetry with a simple rhyme pattern and a refrain. As usual, you rose to the challenge beautifully.
First in was a paeon of praise for her hometown from Sri. If you’re looking for a holiday destination, sounds as though you could do a lot worse 🙂
Kim’s poem is so terribly sad in a very contemporary way. Not what I was expecting. The kind of poem that gets under the skin.
Kerfe’s poem is cosmic! The ultimate question and symbolic answers. And beautiful artwork too 🙂
Kat’s poem is particularly apposite at this time of year. Even more so for me when I’m trying to do the exact opposite of these avian hoarders 🙂
Ken’s poem made me sigh with pleasure. That last stanza is just gorgeous.
Merril’s poem is her own personalised variant with an attractive coda. Love it 🙂
Doug, the Elusive Trope with a poem that is stark and uncompromising as a black and white photograph.
Janice sends out a timely message in her poem
From the Crow, grimly brilliant, if that’s allowed.
Thanks again for all the wonderful poems and helping to keep alive that tenuous hope that humanity isn’t all rotten. New challenge tomorrow.
