August Visual Poetry Prompt


My apologies on the late prompt posting. At least you didn’t have to wait as long as he did. Don’t make your poetry wait to be posted to the comments below.

  1. Oh Octavian
    Even your monuments are pocked
    You never were that good looking
    Is Clodia laughing now?

    Reaching for cane
    I see my face
    lined and ruddy
    Gravity 1, Skin 0

    I grab my hat
    and take the dog for a walk

  2. He thought it would be longer
    His heart lost fibrous strength
    As shadows ebbed and flowed
    Long gone was his soul
    Watching from the scoop of the moon
    Worried no more
