“American Carnage,” #MirrorCinquain, #NaPoWritMo, #PhotoPrompt, #TankaTuesday

This week, Anita Dawes selected the photo for the Ekphrastic photo prompt challenge on Word Craft: Prose & Poetry. The two cinquains will also take care of my poem-a-day commitment for yesterday and today, including NaPoWritMo.

I missed the opportunity to post this on Earth Day as was my intent. It’s been a busy week. My mirror cinquain follows:

"American Carnage"

death stinks
of destruction
waterless regions scorched 
American carnage laid bare
ravaged
by greed
politics voided common sense
the mother goddess bleeds
searching for her
revenge
