Wednesday Wordle: Battle Scars


Drums beat along the graveside
Shattering the peace of the night
Strips of flag, torn, show battle signs
Yet those gathered hold on tight

    1. Thanks, VK. I did struggle slightly, I’ll admit. I wrote two more before settling with this one. I may post the other two one day, and you’ll see why. For now, though, they will remain hidden! 😀

    1. That was one of the images I was playing with (which is an awful term to use considering the subject), Frank, but it was more the effects I was looking at rather than war itself.


  1. There is a curious dichotomy in this poem where the sacrifice of a loved one in war is replaced with admiration from others who praise their service whilst leaving you still bereft, empty and heartbroken.
