The Ruba’i of Kara

Sad daughter of Krypton, all others gone, she is last
Her home’s ashes scattered, apocalyptic blast
None to share her burden, the magnitude of grief
She flies from memories, but can’t escape the past

Peace, love, and Patchouli set a challenge to write a ruba’i – see Aging.

    Not my challenge, Challenge a day;) lots of fun and yours is awesome. Not my style of writing(my gift to the day challenge) but getting out of my comfort zone is great:). Good job frank:) love this.

      Myself, I’m always playing with rhythm and rhyme, so the challenge was more how to make it meaningful instead of playful – combined with my personal Supergirl challenge, which is proving harder and harder to do.

      Thanks! – I love your poetry.
