More poetry from my offspring


Artillery shells screaming from the heavens

Like angels of death

Air raid sirens howl in the night

Shelters full of fear

The husks of tanks blown asunder

Haunt the streets

Wailing of people lost and forgotten

Amidst the chaos of war

    Wow, my teenage poetry was complete rubbish. This is really, really good.

    Very good. Descriptive. Emotive.

    The brevity of poetry makes it such a powerful text. You’ve done well.

  4. Luelle says:

    It’s a very visual style. It made me feel like I was watching the poem, not reading it. Impressive. 🙂

    This is really good, I wish I could write poetry like this

    This poem is SO good. It is very dark, but the aural imagery is excellent. Extremely evocative.
