The Absence #Poetry #NaPoWriMo #NationalPoetryMonth

It’s finally April! For the entire month, I plan to focus on writing poetry.

As a motivation to stick to the goal of one poem per day, I am taking part of the annual Ekphrastic Challenge over on The Wombwell Rainbow – hosted by Paul Brooks.

This Challenge is a collaboration between three artists and nearly a dozen writers including myself.

The Absence

The empty black chair

once used by someone of great value

claimed through a senseless,

bloody war

robbing her of the only

lifeline

that kept her tethered

to sanity
