Damage of Love

Today was a travel day for me, so I had lots of thinking time, but precious little actual writing time. After checking out both prompts, only one seemed to work for me and it was found at the Writer’s Digest site. The suggestion was to write about damage. I was in a bit of a rush to write this one, so I felt it was the perfect time to fall back on one of my favorite poetic forms – the blitz poem. To enjoy to the fullest – read it quickly and don’t think too much! 🙂

The prompts didn’t want to work together today, but eventually I came up with something that I think works. It’s a senryu (similar to a haiku) that took the NaPoWriMo prompt asking for a different sort of love poem and the Writer’s Digest prompt requesting a departure poem and made something simple and clear.

Far more from me than just the

Pieces of my heart.
