War, or: Peace

A ‘puente’ poem

arose anxiously
expecting to share her news
flushed and anxious for

~Tonight, Tonight~

can't come soon enough
expectations arouse him
civilian life

W3 poetry prompt

This week’s W3 poetry prompt, hosted by Tanmay Philip, is to:

  1. Write a โ€œPuenteโ€ poem;
  2. The middle stanza should contain the title of a song;
    • You can add more words to the middle stanza if you wish.

I selected Smashing Pumpkin’s song ‘Tonight, Tonight’.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. Love how you sweated these thoughts
    The embers never fade

    Believe in me
    Believe, believe

    That life can change
    That youโ€™re not stuck in vain
    Weโ€™re not the same, weโ€™re different

    Excellent puente guided by captivating lyrics.
