(6/30) Everything Burns

The Prompt for Day 6: create an ekphrastic poem utilizing any image contained within Hieronymous Bosch’s painting, The Garden of Earthly Delights


Cities become
fiery dominoes
when peace is toppled;

everything burns…


bridges


skin


sky


hope.

Armies of men,
scorched earth sharpies
marking the land
with blood and soot;

war is a love language,
carnage is currency

and

ashes of fallen Valkyrie
rain down like quiet
charred snow.
