image from google dot com

broken eyelids scar
delicate threads of sadness
morning weaves sunlight

broken rifles scatter
grief so high a mounain creens
at broken bodies

broken skins shed hearts
robust from the power dread
greedy to suffer

break that TV screen!
monster of broken torture
switching you's and i's

so all may see me
the backs of technology
i dare to ride on

breaking news dreams souls
bound to garish depictions
broken planet earth

ah now the sweet treat
of a cherished broken thing
quite by accident

broken coffee pot
bought at the ten dollar store
charming little thing



Revisit
toppled
broken glass
broken



i am blog hopping today at
Poetry Jam the prompt is "broken"

I enjoyed each of your stanzas, Gillena. Ha, I think oftentimes we might be better off with a broken tv screen....and oh that breaking news that we cannot escape. I smiled at the last one with the broken coffee pot!

Love this, just because it is broken does not mean it cannot be loved.

The switch from heavy/serious things to the coffee pot is a good contrast. This flows nicely, too.

the infants
heirs to this poisoned world
soured icons

__We must change, a return to the more humane and pure-thought society that would enrich the world we leave to them... by not being the 'soured icons' that they would follow.
