Nov PAD Chapbook Challenge Day 12 – ‘After the Fall’


Day 12’s prompt was to ‘take the phrase “After (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem’. I came up with this, ‘After the Fall’. A bit more hopeful and positive than some of the bleaker stuff I seem to have ended up writing a lot this month! Hope it proves inspirational if you’re having a bad day…

After the Fall

After the fall
Where dreams became dust,
We will rise up again
And take back the time
That the plummet took away.

There is now a twinkle
In our tired old eyes.
A flicker of faith
That burns with clarity
And sees the coveted light.

The world has wonder now
After being draped in grey.
There are hidden gardens
And deep chambers to discover
On a trail teeming with secrets.

After the fall
Our dreams driving us on,
We shall stand back up
And tread with new feet
In this bewitching world
That is awash with colour again.
