I see that there is a new poetry competition here. I am not planning on submitting a piece. But if you want a review feel free to ask me, I will do my best. You don't need to review my pieces back, reviewing some pieces is a good motivation for me to stay active on this site :)

The Dustbowl of Life

March 21, 2021

FREE WRITING

A girl played in a field
Way out by the silo
Near next years yield
When the storm said hello

The wind whooshed by
Nobody was prepared when it came
The girl ran inside past the dust
Nothing ever stays the same
I'm trying to be a little more active. History is fascinating, and the dustbowl never fails to amaze me. The dust in all of the pictures from that time look absolutely terrifying. And yeah.

    I really like the rhythm of this poem, its actually kinda fun to read outloud! Its short and bittersweet, "nothing ever stays the same" is such a nice line to end on
