I've noticed theres been a shift towards short poems among a fair amount of poets. I like them, they pack a punch, deep as an ocean, sharp as a Jewish accountant
Please write a poem (new) with words not exceeding 25. Title not included
I'm looking for depth, intellect, wit even
I've a theme for this one, if you dont mind. The image above struck me, and her story, I found quite beautiful:
she took the gun from her injured husband who was carted away in a car to a safe house. she kept the army back until she was eventually killed. when the commander of the army saw they were fighting a woman he told his army not to touch her. she was buried by her own kind
anyhow, he said aloud "we fight for a queen who cares not about us, and she fought for love and nation"
The photo was chosen for Women's day in Ireland and the quote below was written on top:
"Don't be afraid to be associated with a strong woman. One day may come and she'll be your only army".
take what you like out of the image, no need to take it literally if it's not your cup of tea, concentrate more on the quote
Thank you muchley
let's say two per human
