Terza Rima

 

Lake Michigan (18)

Bequeathing the Broken
(or That Which Children Gather)

Into the waters she sent her wounds,
to be released,
unholy as an awkward blue

moon from where old men see
the counted stars
and where young men are deceived,

where youth are cast upon the seas
to sail or flay
against the lesions of the deceased.

 ***

our lost jungle poetry form challenge
In which Khara asks us to do the terza rima

twist.

My twist was shortening the second
line of each tercet.
