PAD Challenge: Poem No. 20 “Rebirth”

Published Categorised as Poetry

Today’s prompt for Writer’s Digest Poetic Asides poem-a-day challenge is to write a poem of rebirth. Robert Lee Brewer writes, “There are many different types of rebirth available….So think on it a bit, and create a stellar rebirth poem.” Then I noticed his next post on the poetic form Villanelle and thought I’d give it a try. Well, I don’t know if I produced a stellar rebirth poem, but I sure thought on it!


Stately ribbon of onyx ice
Cascades down to the

Of dreams and strife and such a nice
Life with mari on the
Stately ribbon of onyx ice.

Rending the air, screams sard and bice,
so angry at the

Demanded on this night of vice,
Shriek, fly, along the
Stately ribbon of onyx ice.

Then o’er the remains Armistice
Rises and lights the

Ramryge angels at Gloucester Cathedral, England

Brain injury grief is

extraordinary grief

research proves

needs healing.

Up to see wisdom and brave choice
Face the light created on the
Stately ribbon of onyx ice
