The Fence Post

A lone post

Keeps its vigil

Solid wood

Aged but strong

Rusted barbed wire

Dangling down

Standing on the peak

Of a slope covered

In deadened stalks of grass

The soft blue sky

Shining brightly behind

A single remnant

Of a long gone fence

Standing alone

On a hill

novicemaster: The imagery in this prose poem is glorious. I love the way you manipulate words. You seem to have harnessed them to bend to your every whim. The slightly archaic ones like "whilst" make this resemble a fairytale. The entire idea of a prose poem is brilliant. I didn't get the ending at first, but ...

ItsAnnier: Great original idea! Long poems don't often hold me, but yours did to the end and made me want more of the story. Was it a Crime of passion with the murderer returning to the crime scene? I hope further poems will tell me more!
