Relay of Fire – #writephoto

Relay of Fire

War drums echoed the clamor of clouds
Calling to arms all able men
Signal sent in ancient times
Old rivals always lurk
Danger at our door
Swifter response
Is needed
Light the
Fire

This nonet is my response to Sue Vincent’s (Daily Echo) Thursday Photo Prompt – Beacon #writephoto, with her photo.
Nonet ~ a poem of nine lines and a syllable pattern of 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, with rhyme optional

    Here’s a bit of poetry in response to a writing prompt. I like the prompt and the result – very historic response and one that grabs my attention as a fantasy writer. I can imagine the danger behind lighting the beacon and call men to arms. It’s the stuff of good story – kudos!
