Colleen’s #weekly poetry challenge #47


Her dark eye shadow

applied with the lghtest touch

enhanced her beauty.

Beauty that ensnared many

and would lead them to their doom

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 45 Hate & Pride


Their banners unfurled

chanting lines of marching men

defending their homes

No hate lies within my chest

but admiring of their pride


Hate spills from thin mouths 

as marchers proclaim their pride.

Tension all around.
