Aftermath

Jane Dougherty Writes

For day 17 of Paul Brookes’ April poetry challenge, inspired by the artworks of Asum Wasim Dar and John Phandal Law. Please go to Paul’s blog to see the art and read the poems.

Aftermath

Full fathom five
in pearl-light bathed they lie
or in the deep and petaled mud
their coral bones wave-rocked
or gnawed by dogs
all pale all dead all gone.
