OctPoWriMo Day 20 (Amberous Light) – Trimeric – October 20, 2015

Amberous Glow

in a cavern an amberous light
shimmering ghostly shades – set off the night
chilling whispers echo all around
reminding me of lives long gone

shimmering ghostly shades – set off the night
the cold dank cavern came alive again
as here a battle rages and men meet their death

chilling whispers echo all around
lamenting the shortness of life and love
all wasted for a king’s avidity and his “noble”  cause

reminding me of lives long gone
this place lies hidden – haunted by useless war
but no noble king or sultan ever shudders – now or then

This is a scheduled post, since today I begin my trip to Padua for my son’s graduation.  Thanks for reading this post.  Georgia (Bastet)

  1. Brava cara!!! I love your trimeric…I finally got it right last night, the trimeric I mean:) Félicitations pour ton fils…what an achievement. Maman doit être très fière:)


  2. What a juxtaposition — thoughts of war and your son’s graduation. The poem aptly calls out those who plan and order for the senseless horror of war. Interesting poetic form as well. Now, enjoy your break away from all that is known. May your celebrations go well.
