Sonnet for Game of Thrones

Off they went to battle with death

better organized than their foe

hardly time to pursue a breath

the horn did three times blow

 

 

Picture them now on the battlefield

dragon glass spikes and burning moat

fire rains down on corpses held

under spell a straight spear will unbolt

 

 

Heroes will live and some will fall

I hope your favorite is not done

we know it can’t be the end of all

there are more episodes following this one

 

 

Game of Thrones season finale is here

read the book or binge-watch next year

Sonnet for Game of Thrones

Hometown Building

The library, church, elementary and junior high school were buildings significant to my childhood.  Their appearances would suggest that they were built around the same era with bricks from the same brickyard perhaps by the same bricklayers.  I never knew their history only their halls and rooms.

A tornado destroyed the schools.  The old library has been purchased for an upscale living space.  The church still has service once a week by a visiting pastor who says God is good.  The organist plays but there is no choir.  High on the steeple, bells still ring out the time and a tune.

oh what memories

built from debris of the past

rip through the springtime
