Another #thedirtythirty prompt. Day 5: Write about something you don’t usually write about and don’t use cliche poem words (love, fire, soul, heart, etc.)

A poem using #thedirtythirty prompt for Day 4: Symmetrical poem (same number of syllables in each stanza) with a rhyming couplet in the middle about Starting Over.

Inspired by the weekly Historical European Martial Arts class (sword fighting) I attend every week with Adelaide Sword Academy.
