NaPoWriMo Day #8

Totally off prompt today – it wasn’t for me.

Deep Sleep

By Scott Bailey © 2015

Trees on the horizon
Fingers accusing the sunset
Shimmering waters deep

The soul of man divided
A fear that never speaks
Darkness encroaches deep

Thunder in the morning
Lightning cracks on high
Rolling sound so deep

Division rends asunder
Lands that had known peace
Now their daughters sleep

    Hi, I am such a noob in poetry. Can you explain to me your intention for making your lines with this style. Thanks 😊

      Pacing really. It gives an extra pause to each line. As well as making each line more distinct. Almost like each is a semi stanza.
