Becoming a Man #poetry #prompt #kyrielle

Jane Dougherty has prompted us to write a Kyrielle, which you’ll find described here but to add to the trickery we have a picture and some random words. Thanks Jane. For some reason a somewhat masculine theme came to mind.

jane dougherty moonlight prompt

Nowhere to hide in soft moonlight

If there’s someone left still to fight


Your mates are there, and me and you

The day we walked that Avenue

*

Should men, good and true, softly tread

If there’s no one left and all are dead

And our fists are clenched, a wary crew

The day we walked that Avenue

*

There’s a secret to becoming a man

Know when to run, when make a stand

Ignore your mind, if heart be true

The day we walked that Avenue.

In addition I published an anthology of short stories, Life, in a Grain of Sand this summer. A fourth book will be out soon. This started life as a novel in a week on this blog and will follow later this year. I blog about all sorts at geofflepard.com and welcome all comments. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.
