The Wall [Prompt - Missing]


brick brick brick brick
brick brick          brick
brick brick brick brick


This was in response to today's prompt over at the Google+ group Haiku Nook.

This was inspired by Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall"

September Review

Hi fellow readers and browsers,

It feels great to active after a month of writing and posting poetry here on my blog after 2 years.
Between taking a poetry workshop through Coursera (which I mentioned here), participating in various Haiku groups on Google+ and Facebook, as well as various sites that provide prompts, I'm starting to feel the creative spark slowly come alive. About time!

The shepherd
gathers his flock
of black sheep

Poet's Note
I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Festival of Families on Saturday, as well as the Papal  Mass on Sunday with my uncle, aunt, and cousin. It was an extremely powerful moment, not only did I see the Pope drive by, but I was also surrounded by a community of people who gathered together in spiritual solidarity.

                                           Bowling balls roll down the lane and hit pins-
                                           I hear thunder

A pleasant dream
Packaged in a memory

With wrapping paper
tattered and torn

Autumn leaves slowly
drape the grave site with a soft
golden blanket
