Eyes sting
Ears ring
Black ravens sing


Spirit ages
Face rages
Devil turns the pages


Soul urges
Heart purges
Ghost plays dirges


Mind thinks
Psyche blinks
Wise owl winks


Body falls
Anger stalls
Rancid rat crawls


And eyes sting
And ears ring
And black ravens sing . . . again

Note: My fellow-blogger and friend, Tanya Cliff, penned another “vers l’avant,” the type of poetry read above, and inspired me to do the same. Thank you, Tanya! This was an invigorating challenge and fun!
