the day after – a poem

Side Note

I’m taking part in the 2015 PAD challenge, which means this is a break in what I usually post. Today’s Poem is to:

For today’s prompt, write a day after poem. For instance, today is the day after Halloween in our house, but the poem could be the day after any event. Maybe it’s the day after a wonderful event, or it could be the day after a horrible event. I hope to see you the day after writing today’s poem.

The Day After

I had more questions than answers.
Little remained in the snow and ice.
Taking chances we rolled the dice,
cast our lots to the stars up high,
hoped our friends knew how to survive.

Surveying the damage and debris
twisted wreckage, the landscape reborn
ideologies rearranging the form.
Words pervasive, insidious cancers
leaving me more questions than answers.

How about you?
