The battered tower – A Triolet, Ekprastic Challenge, January 28

Christine O’Connor

The battered tower stands stark white
Against the fiery chaotic skies

All through the catastrophic night
The battered tower stands stark white

As city, land and wood burns bright
When hope for democracy dies

The battered tower stands stark white
Against the fiery chaotic skies
