Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer - PoetryChallenge2011

Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer - PoetryChallenge2011

Today is the final "Two for Tuesday" prompt(s) of the month:
  1. Write a leader poem.
  2. Write a follower poem.
I'll leave it up to you to decide what a leader or follower poem might be. You can either lead the way in figuring that out, or follow the lead of another.


"I Have to Follow"

Tonight,
The sirens will wail,
Disrupting my sleep
To the sounds of thunder and wind.
That rips and tears and shreds,
Trees and homes...
And I can do nothing...
I have to follow the path of the storm
Into the darkness,
Praying for the light.
