Tears for Crimea #ukraine #poetry


They fall against the pane of my heart

rattling my soul

where are they

those children I taught?

they young women  and men

my adopted grand son

what questions are unanswered

we have little concern for life they spend

each of you beautiful to me

talented, artistic, musical

full of hope

where is the land on the Black Sea?

are your dreams under the treads of a tank?

“God, please be with these people

who  have been dangled

society’s weak thread”

MapCrimeaThere’s so much being said about Crimea and Ukraine. I’ve lived with the people and know  they have suffered much. If Ukraine wanted to be part of Russia it would be. These people are  once again being placed  in a political meat grinder.

The map of Crimea is from the Ukraine Travel Advisor which shows some beautiful travel spots.

  1. That age-old political ploy of stuffing a country you’re ruling with your own people, so that in time it becomes a hotbed of those wanting it to become one with you. How many times ..?!
    I must pass this post on to my friend Jouena, who is Ukrainian by birth, lives in the USA, and is married to a Moroccan!


    1. Thank you, Moodustwriter, thank you M.R. it’s getting scarier and scarier every day… and our new government seem to be only helping the separation moods which is a great favor to Russia…


      1. Exactly! Especially now, when my dear Odessa is easily under The Greedy Eye… we have always been Porto Franco and the ppl were proud and worthy! It might be very different this time…


  2. The boot heel of tyranny falls on the necks of the just as well as the unjust. We can pray for them. We can hope for them. We can cry for them. And there is nothing else we can do, which is what frustrates us so madly.
