Might’ve Been, D. Avery
It might’ve been just a paver
stone solid underfoot
unnoticed had it not come to hand,
raised arm become muscled haft;
had it not glistened red,
bloodied in the sticky night.
The idea from Frank J. Tassone at dVerse Poets’ Pub for todays Meeting the Bar prompt is Imagism. Frank says, “Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a poem utilizing the aesthetics of the Imagists. Use free verse, imagery, a focus on the “thing” of your choosing, and an economy of language in service of your presentation.”
