snaggit amang
the brummle's jags
a riven-up scrieve

snagged amongst
the bramble's thorns
a torn-up letter


  1. leaves on the river:
    willow, maple, birch...
    and a torn letter

  2. This one leaves me with a lot of questions. I guess I'll have to write my own answers.

    I agree with "magiceye". Poignant, indeed. A strong feeling of sadness, of violence.
    I like very much the alliteration thorns / torn-up and admire the technique and the prosody. It is a lesson for me.

    An excellent poem! Thank you for sharing, John.
