War No More

War No More

Gaze into the distance,imagine
as they fade on the horizon
illusory images
of a place in time when
poppies need not grow
with thoughts of war
lost in a
distant
haze

My response to Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge #5: Nonet
is my first attempt at this form of poetry.
Nonet: a poetry form of nine lines following the syllable pattern of 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
