Poetry Prompt War (Haiku/couplet poem)

Frightened stone faces
show etchings of lingering
wars, death, fear...sorrow

Friend or foe unknown
too lifeless seekers of death
easily killing

Until there is just
enough life to create a
new generation.

Perhaps they will start over loving peace.
Appreciating brother, sister, niece.

You capture the tragedy of war. The youth cut down and the fading hopes of a generation. The war graves a sad testament to the cold brutality.

Nicely written Melissa. Great entry.

I agree. Also the rhyme at the end put just the right amount of emphasis on the close.
