A Nightmare #911 #poem

What does a world do in the face of a disaster like 911?


Awakened in the mourn

Memory from Hell

Remembered too well

How could it be?

surrreal they fly

Flames from planes

Screams in the smoke

Extinguished too soon

Shake the dead

Ghosts of years

Resigned to memorials

Personal tears

Where our fears

This fateful day

Place them on hope

Chase sorrows away

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Leslie,
    Thank you for the tribute to those who have fallen on this day ten years ago. Everyone in the United States that day felt turbulent emotions that day. It is just as raw today as it was Ten years ago. Thank you for your magnificent words.
