Excavating the Archives: Brick by Brick

brick wall

Brick by brick

My castle grows

The towers rise

Out of the forest

Climbing into the air

Until they reach the stars

Joining earth and sky

Binding moon and sun

In the promise

Of magic to come


From August 2015, https://sammiscribbles.wordpress.com/2015/08/24/brick-by-brick/

Outcast

On the outside

Unnoticed, invisible

They cannot see me, or

Choose not to

As I am not one of them

So strikingly different

This side of The Veil


Written for the Weekend Writing Prompt #1 – Outcast.  Follow the link and join in!

I decided to try my hand at the poetry challenge:

Poetry Challenge – Write a seven line poem where the first letter of each line spells out “outcast” when read from top to bottom.  The theme of the poem should somehow tie in to the definition of the word.
