Hollow mute barren.
What is left
of the flesh
but bones, bereft?

are the thoughts and prayers?
Fallen—buried in the sundered earth.

Unseen currents scatter
the fragments that once
cohered.  Ashes dust
atrophy rust.

what once was written in stone.
Fallen—buried in the sundered earth.

What will future archaeologists, whether human or from alien civilization, will make of us? is today’s NaPoWriMo prompt. I’ve used Muri’s Running Repetition form (I hope I got it right…) for my reply.

    1. Thanks Muri. I can never find enough “straight” rhymes, and I like the sound of near rhymes better in general. Regional accents make many words sound different anyway, despite all attempts to make everyone speak the same way.
