Pantoum of the Holocaust

INDIE INK WRITING CHALLENGE!

This week, I decided to do the indie ink challenge again because I enjoyed last week’s challenge so much! I was challenged by Cope of Voluntary Tourettes to write on the prompt: “Falling from a mountain of bodies” and I challenged him to write on the topic of “violin music in the dark.”

Pantoum of the Holocaust

 

 

 

 

 

Falling from a mountain of broken bodies,

remembering days, once so bright.

Hear the piano sing, joyous and bawdy!

 A ring shines dull in evening light.


 Remembering days, once so bright.
Long past days, of cool champagne and hot toddies,

a ring shines dull in evening light.

Testament to cruelty, and acts ungodly.

 

Long past days, of cool champagne and hot toddies,

blood-stained ring, still glimmers in dark night.

Testament to cruelty, and acts ungodly

amid the death,  during fuhrer’s reich

 

blood-stained ring, still glimmers in dark night–

Hear the piano sing, joyous and bawdy?

Amid the death, during fuhrer’s reich…

falling from a mountain of broken bodies.

 

By the way, if you are interested in how to write pantoums, you can find it here in a how to post.

    • Thanks for commenting. 🙂 Is it weird that the 1st thing I thought about when I read the prompt was the holocaust? I’m not sure, lol.

    • Well it sounds like a song mostly because of the rules of the form, which is supposed to make it easier to remember and retell. I like to sing but I’m not a musician. 🙂
