dead end

photoart & poem – 2018 -Laura Granby

The book has closed
pages by the hundred read
most words understood
the plot thickened
intermittently thinned
scenes manifested
storylines soared
characters drawn and quartered
I the reader entered
listened and witnessed
thrilled, perturbed
despaired, agitated
and finally – dejected?
– relieved?
always a bit dead
at The End

Exploring the voiced dental stop d which in English sounds an abrupt conclusion when placed at the end of words. Although I did not enter NaPoWriMo2018 I am ending the month with the Ladies in Waiting prompt from Elizabeth that includes a choice of concluding words from Final to Over

  1. Spot on, Laura. When I started reading to my granddaughter, we always made a point of saying together, rather vigorously, The End, when we had reached the last word. The end is THE END! And Happy May 1 tomorrow, our 47th wedding anniversary.
