‘Over the Top’ ~ Battle of the Somme

The Battle of the Somme was considered one of the most devastating battles of World War One. The initial battle charge of the British/French and Allied forces into the ‘No Man’s Land’ battlefront started promptly at 7:30 am on the morning of July 1, 1916. This first offensive attempt by the Allies was preceded for as many as 5 days of artillery barrage of well-over a million munition shells into the front line and surrounding trench fortifications of the German troops prior to the 1st of July. The Battle of the Somme continued on for 141 consecutive days, resulting in immense loss of lives and debilitating injuries in the millions. This event was neither the beginning, nor the end of the war.

RGB

RGB Primary Colors of three. Draw a line And let it be Colored with life, Drawn by hand, from me. A graceful curve Splotches of sheen A shadow’s darkened cast, Brief glimpses of my own mystery. Blank pages achingly beckon

A Circular Situation Alliteration

Camera captured convergent and congruent crossings containing combined congregations of coincidentally collaborative and conciliatory colloidal configurations.

Do Drops Desire?

Can we recall the first time? That moment of our realization; that initial release to these unexpectedly unexplored realms. Plunging freely within that moment; compelled onwards by our own momentum, a gravitational tug downward. Destined to become a fluid muddling

At Night

A sliver of moonlight scrapes along my windowpane. Hurting my mind as these eyes wouldn’t see These shards of my saddening darkness  Silhouetted as outlines drawn My curtains shut tight At night. ~ an EWK Poe’em   ©2016 EWK

Self Centered

I’m a spinning top. Balance lost. Arms and bits flailing Stray thoughts and feelings Commotion of every size and sort Overspent forces in assorted directions. Comings and goings Often not returning Distracted contributions Fogs of confusion. It’s not about me

Ever Upward

Our lives are so received Subject to a memory The edifice of person. Spirit of minds eventual uniting Within the endless bounds of time Eternities of sighs and disbeliefs. Containment of desires Eluded by weighted patience Held to earthen legacies.
